Holland, MI, United States

I've always been fascinated with pictures. Eventually, that fascination developed my interest in photography. Understanding how light dramatizes, enlightens, suggests or demands a thought provoking moment kindled a passion to pursue photojournalism. Inspired by the journey and punctuated with the unexpected I began to view the world from a different perspective. As the passage of time introduced life changing interests I realized new challenges. Eventually, those challenges brought me to Michigan where I was introduced to ArtPrize! This will be my fifth year in ArtPrize; my second year at the Women’s City Club. For ArtPrize 10, my photography on canvas is Cathedral Rock, Sedona, Arizona, after a cool February storm. Against an alluring foreground and dramatic sky a "snow-capped" cloud in the distance appears mountainous over a brilliant sandstone landscape. After exploring the Sedona “neighborhood” I realized the fluctuating storm conditions began to subside. Looming in the distance, Cathedral Rock. I sensed a great shot was to be had! After parking the car a fast paced hike toward this landmark resulted in several dramatic images. This is my favorite. Cathedral Rock in all its spiritual brilliance!
