Welcome!

I specialize in the artistic genre known as “nature spirit photography.” Before the camera, people could only draw or describe the nature beings with whom they interact. I began my own personal photographic journey in 2003 when a gnome invited me to come photograph a moss fairy village.

My award-winning photos are perfect additions to your conscious home and office decor. Each large image is a numbered, autographed and individually printed art piece. Free shipping in the USA and Canada! 20% Off our popular Guardian of Sheldon Church image, now through July 5!

I’ve arranged over 600 photographs by subject type, often with detailed descriptions. Stories and in-depth explanations are found in the library and in the three books I’ve written on this subject. Scroll down for ways to join us on social media…

Trumpet Flower Spirits

Trumpet Flower Spirits

Angel Trumpet Flowers (Brugmansia Suaveolens)  are so-called because people felt they resemble horns. Because the plant is of the poisonous nightshade family, the story became that these are the trumpets by which the angels summon dying souls to the spirit worlds.

My Friends the Gnomes

My Friends the Gnomes

Gnomes are the friendliest of beings. I'm very fond of them. No matter where I travel, there is often a gnome in residence who makes his presence known to me.  Gnomes are excellent beings to have in residence at a home. They are hard working and like to keep things in...

Seasoned Elf Leaders

Seasoned Elf Leaders

The Elf realm is very broad and with many variations. These include the delicate small elves, the masked warriors, and the senior leaders. These mature leaders, like many in the human realm, can have a strong muscular commanding presence and are stouter of build. Here...

Death is a happy part of life, these stone beings are telling us...the large stone is smiling while his left spirit eye is occupied by a smiling monster who is pulling into his mouth a clearly-veined stone leaf that at its base has broken apart. It mirrors the leaves at the bottom of the photo who are being eaten to death by insects. I've graphed the parts. ... See MoreSee Less
