As an emerging artist with many tastes in art, I've created this newsletter to share what I'm working on right now.
This photo was taken in Quartzite, AZ with a drone camera. I love the perspective it gives — a slightly uplifted POV that allows a larger field of view in the image capture.
It's also the first purchase from my I AM series of nude portraits in nature. I'm building out the body of work by writing poetry to accompany each image. (And submitting to juried exhibitions and photo contests! Please let me know of any galleries that might be interested in showing this work.)

Here's a quick text from the buyer:
"I am looking at your art work and smiling. It sits on the wall I see when I wake up from my bed each morning. Thank you." Karen D.
Title: I AM: Discussing Age at Sunset with a Saguaro
I learn, the saguaro stands still,
singular and self-contained
for up to 90 years
before growing an arm.
I mention, that
I’ve often felt like a puppet,
too many arms tangling
in things I don’t really care about.
Tucking my arms in.
