|Welcome. I am a naturalist, nemophilist, Oregon coast photographer and gallery owner. I was a practitioner of
shinrin-yoku long before I discovered that the Japanese had coined a term for it. After 13 years of creative
living in Mendocino village on the beautiful northern California coast, I find myself pleasantly situated five
degrees of latitude to the north in Yachats (say YAH-hots), Oregon, known as "The Gem of the Oregon Coast",
and more recently as "The Home of the World's Largest Ocean". I've been fortunate; both of these
outstandingly scenic areas are rewarding places to be a photographer. I am a believer in working the local turf,
although I do travel. The once-empty Oregon portfolio has steadily filled as I've explored this wonderfully
diverse state - naturally emphasizing the dramatic shoreline and profound forest where I live. My work is
available here on the central Oregon coast at Wave Gallery in Yachats. I hope that you'll enjoy browsing the
pictures and, if you should pass this way, I invite you to stop by the gallery to see the Northwest (and beyond)
at its internationally-recognized best.
