Laura Rancour, Grand Rapids, MI Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement My love for beauty in nature has continued to grow over the years. It started with plants and flowers. In 1994, I started a landscape design business called Creative Gardening Concepts. I aim for a long season of interest using color, form, texture and movement. In my own yard, I have created a natural habitat for wildlife using trees and flowers to attract birds and butterflies, a pond for frogs, goldfish and koi, and feeders for birds, squirrels, deer and more. I also have four cats who love spending time outdoors with me. Besides animals, I also love the changing of seasons and the way it affects nature, light and color. My camera allows me to capture the wonder and beauty I enjoy and to share it with others.
