While creating images that capture the purity of clean flowing water – something many have never seen, much less submerged themselves into – I am very aware of the issues of scarcity, compromised quality and competition over water as a resource in general. These remain under the surface, inspiring me further to convey the restorative quality that I experience from water – visually, physically, emotionally, spiritually. Not only is it absolutely necessary for life, water provides solace to many of us who travel to be near it as a source of calm and inspiration. Living in the mountains, I sometimes forget how strong the impact of nature is on those who live apart from it. When I lived in New York City, I thrived on the smallest injection of nature's healing energy. If my images impart a little of that to even one person, I have accomplished a great deal.
