Wind Dancing 87
Fine Art Photography
I am a photographer, poet, and storyteller. I use my camera to paint with light and my pen to paint with words. Still photography is my chosen medium to create art exploring the underlying impermanence of life and many moods of motion. Key elements of my visual style are vibrant colors, distinct textures, and movement.
Wind Dancing 87, from the Wind Dancing series, captures visual motion to communicate a mood of joyous abandon. While wind is invisible, we frequently hear, feel, and see its effects. I especially love to feel a cooling breeze on my skin on a hot summer day. Watching how the wind interacts with various forms of plant life, I am reminded of dancing.
