About Artwork

Monarch Butterfly, Wisconsin Tall Grass Prairie 14”h x 24”w archival signed limited-edition traditional luster print, framed in a simple but elegant green frame with black edge: Each spring and summer one of the most amazing transformations takes place, but it’s out of sight for most of us. In just one month, a Monarch butterfly will go through all four stages of i’s life. Starting as a tiny egg less than one centimeters in size. In just a few days the eggs will hatch and begin feeding on the milkweed plant on which they were laid. They grow rapidly and become fully grown within two weeks. At this point the caterpillar crawls to a safe place to pupate. There it chrysalises and begins the amazing metamorphosis process. In about two weeks the newly formed butterfly becomes visible through the shell of the chrysalis and emerges. About one hour after emerging from its chrysalis, the monarch’s wings are full-sized, dry, and ready for flying.

About the Artist

Over the past decade, there has been a lot of change in the tools we use to create photographs. Digital has taken over. Regardless, one thing remains constant. The “Art” of photography is about searching for and finding interesting and compelling subjects and then recording and sharing these “Moments in Time” in a unique and creative style. I find my pallet in nature. In its complexity I find simplicity and try and convey that with my photography. The moments I witness and record inspire me. And I hope the images I create inspire you. I personally control all aspects of the creative process for each of my prints. All are made using high quality archival materials and are signed and numbered. The tools may have changed, but the Art remains within the artist.
