“My love of nature comes from spending summers in the East Tennessee mountains. The beautiful reflections on the lakes created in me the love of trying to capture the majesty of His wonders. Teaching children to swim for 27 years endeared them to me and is the basis of my desire to capture the innocence of children in outdoor settings. And, from my earliest memories, I have loved-and had-all kinds of animals, a love that continues today.”
