I am an author, artist and keynote speaker. I am passionate for nature and creativity. In all that I do from creating my own art to leading workshops, speaking or writing my goal is to Celebrate Beauty, connect to spirit and inspire others to weave a personal commitment to what they love.
As a speaker and workshop leader, I use the beauty of my photographic images, personal stories, garden metaphors, and humor to inspire the imagination of my audience to connect with what has heart and meaning for them, and to express their own creativity.
My passion for Nature and appreciation of beauty inspired my dedication to diverse projects around the world, from Monet's Gardens in Giverny, France, to remote African villages, to the Amazon rain forest and Japan.
I am perhaps best-known for my work helping to restore Monet's gardens and photographing them for 25 years. My photos have traveled with Monet's paintings to eight museums, and are published annually in calendars and the award winning Monet's Passion: Ideas, Inspiration & Insights from the Painter's Gardens. I completely re-wrote Monet's Passion for it's 20th anniversary edition. Currently I have a photographic Show at the New York Botanical Gardens celebrating Monet's Garden May 19-Oct. 21.
