I am a full-time photographic artist and writer based in Guysborough County, Nova Scotia, where my spirit is sustained and my work is inspired by the remote coastal scenery and moody weather right outside my door. The appeal is partly aesthetic, but also deeply rooted in my love of the outdoors and my interest in geology and the natural environment. I see beauty in scenery that many people dismiss as bleak: a granite headland, a windswept barrens, a bog, a snowy field. I make photographs in these landscapes because they evoke in me a passionate sense of place, and of belonging in that place.

My portfolio includes an extensive list of publications, exhibitions and workshops, with two wilderness guidebooks published by the Boston Mills Press, and feature articles in Canadian and U.K. magazines. Recent work has included photographic fundraising projects for the Nova Scotia Nature Trust and Bird Studies Canada. My work can be found at select galleries, fine art and craft shows, and in private collections worldwide.

I took up photography originally to illustrate my writings about wilderness travel, but it has since evolved into more contemplative imagery that explores the landscape in the context of broader human and environmental themes. My creative techniques and minimalist aesthetic often leave viewers wondering "Is this a photograph, or a painting?" -- a question that always delights me!
