I started this blog several years ago with a theme of "What I see" and it is still that but, with a lot of "sniffing" on the way.

When I acquired this new little companion, the best dog model "Leeluu", she inspired a new way of seeing. I thought I was looking closely but until you have watched a terrier examine things you really have no idea.

So while this is still a blog of "What I see" it has been distilled to terrier level.

Turns out either in the studio or outside I really do enjoy the "sniffing" style. I notice a trend in my art of focusing on a unique moment or perspective. Not a micro shot but more of a micro-moment. A moment that tells a story with no words required.

So if you, like me, enjoy touching those artful moments, timeless connections and having treasured creations give me a call! I offer unique wall art to make a micro-moment become a timeless connection and a treasured creation.  Limited sessions offered for 2018

On one of our daily sniffs, LeeLuu and I encountered a new gentleman "Willie". He was obviously getting on in years but could still joyfully muster some puppy dancing and even a few sprints! While Willie, Leeluu and a schnauzer pup "Misty Rose" introduced themselves. I took time to capture the wonderful interactions. Once the initial meet, greet,...

No Rules in Art

January 12, 2018  •  5 Comments
I think I am a rule follower and get the need for structure. But I question the need for rules in art. Guidelines yes, best practices maybe. Art is so subjective how can we apply rules? With the overwhelming volume of photographs today how do you stand out when following all the same rules? Considering the rule of thirds, it always confused me. It...

The "goddess of frolic"!

January 04, 2018  •  3 Comments
Tabula Rasa.."Something that exists in its original state and that has yet to be altered by outside forces" For me each journey or specific shooting adventure begins as a "tabula rasa". Then, when I step back and really look, the fun (magically it seems) appears. This week I went to the river with a friend of mine. She happens to be a light guide...

" You get the dog you need/or deserve"?

"You don't always get the dog you want. You get the dog you need and each dog teaches you the lesson you need the most" Cesar Milan I have owned dogs, horses, cats, barnyard animals etc. all my life. While I do not think I am a "trainer" I did feel capable and able to control animals under my care. My family owned hunting breed dogs... Short Hairs...
