Immense, Silent, and Sacred

My relationship with California’s deserts spans more than thirty years. Curiosity and awe combined with a deep reverence for and love of these lands has led to numerous unique bodies of photographic work and a lifetime of artistic fulfillment. I will share inspirational photographs and stories from my experiences in the land of little rain while touching on fine art printing, display, and exhibition.
