Throughout my journey as a photographer and artist, I have considered various ways in which my art has value. I remember the moment I discovered the value of healing. I volunteered at a local hospital and witnessed heart breaking moments. When I returned home, I needed a way to process these moments. I began looking through nature photography and discovered a space of comfort and healing from the difficult days.
I am feeling a bit of “cabin fever” from the pandemic mixed with the 24 inches of snow in Saugatuck. I need a visual break from winter and the pandemic! I am using this post to warm you with images of spring. Keep going…we are getting closer.

The encaustic painting above is from my botanical series available at J.Petter Gallery, spring 2021.
This was the first time I experienced a sleeping bee. AMAZING! You will notice water droplets in many of macro nature pictures because I love hiking early in the morning and just after the rain.
Photographed at Douglas Beach, this sweet baby came right up and nosed my camera lens.
Signs of Spring, this robin made her home on my front porch and allowed me to photograph her little family. It was my honor.
