My photographic journey began when someone challenged me to photograph a hummingbird in flight. 'Sun Sweet' hummingbird, an award winner, is the photo that resulted from that challenge. I've always had a strong connection to nature and animals as well as a natural ability for photography, art, and design. My skills have developed from within my heart and reflect my true passion to protect wildlife and preserve nature. I'm drawn to color and compelled to capture it! I welcome all creative opportunities. I love the outdoors and everything living that exists on earth. My fine art prints are designed to bring the natural beauty of outdoors in.

Choosing a medium that's right for you.
Your choice is a personal decision based on style and budget but here's some information that may help you decide.
1. Canvas is great for all images especially images with bright vivid colors, stretched canvas may add the appearance of soft texture to the image, there's no glare. Canvas might be subject to damage if dropped or poked, it may be treated with an approved protective coating. They can be dry wiped but not wet wiped clean. Buyer assumes any risk of damage to a print when applying a protective coating. All canvas prints are shipped "ready to hang" with a hanging wire, mounting hooks, and nails. Two different wrap styles are available, a gallery wrap or museum wrap. The primary difference between the two is the thickness of the wooden stretcher bars.
2. Metal might be slightly darker and more contrasty than the original image appears. This could be good for the right image because the added contrast can make it appear 3D, but always depends upon the image selected. Like any glossy medium, metal is subject to glare. The amount of glare depends upon the lighting conditions in the space it's being displayed. All metal prints arrive "ready to hang" with mounting hooks and nails. Metal prints are extremely durable and lightweight. They won't bend, and they're water resistant so they can be wet wiped clean. The high gloss of the aluminum sheet complements the rich colors of any image to produce stunning results. The aluminum sheet is offset from the wall by a 3/4" thick wooden frame which is attached to the back.
3. Acrylic prints are more true to the actual colors of the original image. Also, the acrylic (when ordered with a hanging wire) is mounted on a backer board, giving it depth and substance, which metal prints lack. Acrylic is heavy and may tip with a wire hanger, so bolts might be a consideration for hanging. Acrylic may be less likely for niks or dings from being dropped or bumped. Acrylic may have glare depending upon where it's placed, and it can be wiped clean. The image gets printed directly onto the back of a 1/4" thick sheet of clear acrylic. The high gloss of the acrylic sheet complements the rich colors of any image to produce stunning results. All acrylic prints arrive "ready to hang" and there are two different ways to mount acrylic prints. Option #1 (Mounting Posts) - Attach your print to your wall with four aluminum mounting posts. The mounting posts act as stand-offs and keep your print separated from the wall by 1". Option #2 (Hanging Wire) - With this option, your acrylic print is attached to a 1/4" thick black board which has a wooden frame and hanging wire attached to the back. Due to the thickness of the black board and mounting frame, your print is separated from the wall by 1.50".
4. Wood may be slightly lighter and have less contrast than the original image appears. This could be good for an image with bright whites or light colors because the wood grain will show through. What is white in the image will be clear on the final print. The visible wood is untreated and natural, the image finish is matte. Wood is 3/4" thick maple plywood. These prints are extremely durable and add a rustic feel to the image. All wood prints come with hanging hardware.
Canvas and wood have 10" & 12" sizes available, metal and acrylic start at 14". Something else to consider, no fine art print on any medium should be hung in direct sunlight or high humidity areas, but some mediums may hold up better than others under varying environmental conditions.
