i began teaching myself photography as a way to cope with chronic illness. the solitude and beauty of the forest has always drawn me in. i can lose myself for hours in the smallest things along a forest path. i have not been able to drive or ride a bike for years. most of the images in these collections are taken within walking or busing of my home here in vermont. i started this site with hopes of allowing others who are housebound, live in cities, or are otherwise unable to get to the woods follow along on my adventures. downloads available for sale. contact me for details.
