If my images have a mission, it is this: to highlight the beauty and surprise found in nature and through her creations. Birds, butterflies, and bees in motion or at rest illustrate the simplicity and complexity of the natural world through their lines, colors, and patterns. Flowers and plants echo the curves and spirals, colors and motions we see in our daily lives. Photography offers me the medium to share fleeting moments captured in time and space.
While more commonly recognized as the James Herriott series, "All Creatures Great and Small," the title of my portfolio is drawn from a poem by Cecil Frances Alexander, entitled Maker of Heaven and Earth (All Things). The portfolio is inspired by the words of Alexander, celebrating the beauty and wonder of the natural world.
