Artist Statement

I fell in love with hummingbirds and began photographing them in my garden in the Santa Cruz Mountains, where I cultivate plants that attract them. Since most of the 300 plus species of hummingbirds live within five degrees of the equator, I make trips to Ecuador and Costa Rica to photograph other species. I try to capture each hummingbird sipping nectar from a local flower. It is my joy to shar the beauty of these amazing flying jewels with you.

Please see my Etsy listing for photographs that you can purchase.
