Would a 'croc' (actually a 'gator') by any other name still have teeth??? On a photo shoot down in the Carolina's - I got down near the water's edge to get a shot of an especially brilliant flower. Coming back up - other hikers commented on my bravery. Oops! Looking back - I learned my first real lesson about 'low country wetlands'!
Did it keep me from the water's edge...???
Na-a-a-h - I just learned to look first!

At the same time his creative imagination drove him to seek the “what if” regions of thought - ultimately leading to concept of “Nature Plus Studios” – scenes which capture the beauty of “Nature Plus” a touch more…
It is the artists' intent to create "healing art" - scenes intended to restore, replenish and rejuvenate the body, mind, heart, soul and spirit. Through each image he seeks to capture some aspect of life and nature that sings to the soul.
His current fascination is in everything digital… whether 3D art, photography, animation or a combination of any of the three. When called for – he will also use authentic oils to bring texture and completion to a specific project. However, in the final analysis it is not the medium but the imagery that must speak for his work.
“The measures I apply to art are simple: does it have passion, does it inspire, does it have symmetry, does it tell a story, does it capture life (as seen with either the eye or the heart…), does it make you smile, laugh or cry - and – ultimately – does it touch your soul?”
