MY CURRENT PROJECTS

Pocket Nature ArtTM

White Daisies from my Flora CollectionWhite Daisies from my Flora Collection I am the first person in the world to create pure platinum ACEO artist original Pocket Nature ArtTM of natural subjects like flowers, trees, and scenic vistas.  You can learn more about my workflow.

My mission is to bring joy and lower stress for people by sharing the healing power of nature through art.  My Pocket Nature ArtTM are the size of trading cards making them very portable as well as highly collectible with endless possibilities for display and arrangement.  I love that a much larger group of people have the means to buy and experience artist original limited edition artwork because Pocket Nature ArtTM are much less expensive than traditional fine art prints.  As an added bonus, they are very portable and you can take them with you when you are mobile to experience the benefits of nature when you need it most.  

St. Francois Mountains

Rocky Creek Shut-ins in St. Francois Mountains - Pure Platinum Print Hanging to DryRocky Creek Shut-ins in St. Francois Mountains - Pure Platinum Print Hanging to Dry All landscapes have a history.  There are distinct voices and languages that belong to particular areas.  There are voices inside the rocks, shifting skies, and trees.  You care learn more about the project here.  

The St. Francois Mountains located in the Ozarks in Southeastern Missouri in the United States are home to a historically and geologically significant landscape.  The St. Francois are a range of Precambrian igneous mountains rising over the Ozark Plateau. This range is one of the oldest exposures of volcanic rock in North America.

The extraordinary saga of St. Francois Mountains started nearly 1.485 billion years ago when they were formed by volcanic and intrusive activity.  By comparison, the Appalachians started forming about 460 million years ago, and the Rockies a mere 140 million years ago. When the Appalachians started forming, the St. Francois range was already twice as old as the Appalachians are today.  These ancient mountains may be the only area in the American Midwest never to have been submerged, (as evidenced by the lack of marine fossils) existing as an island archipelago in the Paleozoic seas.

I am creating pure platinum prints of this incredible landscape that can be collected and passed down for millenia.
