Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike.
~John Muir

I am always looking for ways to help preserve our wild, natural spaces through education, art, writing, and photography.

If you have a documentary photography project in mind, please contact me to inquire about our working together.

And, I love to encourage children to explore nature through art, writing, photography and nature hikes.

Some children’s Educational Programs that I have created and taught:

  • Nature Journaling: Junior Naturalists As Artists
  • Exploring Creative Writing Through The 5 Senses
  • Plein Air Painting In Nature

If you are a nature preserve, non-profit, historical organization, or sustainable farm or garden, in need of an educational workshop, retreat, event, or program for children or adults – please email me today to create something special just for your group.
