Meet the Artist

Hi! That's me! I'm Kristen, the girl behind the camera, all of these images and the design of this entire website.

It has been my life-long dream to travel our beautiful world and photograph it.  I am completely amazed by the beauty of nature that surrounds us and I long to capture amazing, unique photos to share with you!

Through my art, it is my intension to bring peace, calmness, a feeling of freedom and inspiration to the hearts and souls who find me.

I'm so glad you're here!

My Journey

Art has been a part of me my entire life. From my dad being a painter, to my mom enjoying interior decorating, I have always been surrounded by colors and ideas and the concept of creating. I played around with a camera when I was a little girl, but often lost myself in painting more often than photography. It wasn't until I was about 18 where I really picked up a camera again. Can you image what I saw? Our world, which I personally began to feel the weight of, it's loud noise and busyness, was suddenly transformed to a pure sense of tranquility and held a silence like I've never heard. Has anything ever captivated you like that? It's like I saw our big, beautiful world in a whole new light. I was completely captivated by this focused view. Passion fell over me and I was hooked. Years later, I haven't put the camera down. Now photography is not only a passion of mine but it is a part of me, it's the way I see the world, it shapes the dreams in my mind and the thoughts in my head.

You and I, we are born creators. I don't know about you but I can not, not create. I live and breathe this. I am captivated by nature and the beautiful places left untouched. I am captivated by old things, like barns or abandoned homes, knowing just like each and every one of us, they too have a story to tell. And travel? It has become even a deeper and deeper passion of mine. For I chase the beauty and the silence and the tranquility our world still holds. Those quaint and desolate places. It's where I find my peace.

Photography takes me away from the excessive noise and the unnecessary busyness the world has created, leaving me feeling more connected than ever. Nature is the one thing that I will always be connected to, so much so that the importance of it runs through my veins. It is my mission to share this vision, to help bring a sense of calmness and slow that can bring inspiration...bringing true connection as words might not express but only a calming feeling can. A feeling perhaps felt to the depth of your soul...just as it has reached mine.

I am so passionate about my art, that I have realized this is my purpose in life. Not only because I enjoy it, but because I want to bring some peace back to you, in a world, that at times, seems to bring anything but.

Some other random things about me that have nothing to do with my art...

My life does not just consist of making art! I am a wife and a homeschooling mamma to two wonderful, happy, crazy boys! I am also a dog mamma to our two girls...a big, noisy German Sheppard and a sweet little Aussie mix. We also have some chickens, a few other little pets and many toads (thanks to my boys). Aside from my photography, I love interior decorating and writing. My house is never without music and my day never ends without chocolate.

I long to feel deeply connected to the people and places I feel are closest to me. If I had unlimited money I would travel to every corner of this world, photograph it and turn over much of my fortune to help the ocean, help animals, get water to people who need it, build homes and grow gardens for people who need food and shelter, and help children realize they can live a life that aligns with their dreams.

The Essence of Our Lives...

I am the most passionate about photography, yet it is not the only thing I am passionate about. I love writing too!

Did you know I have another website? Well, I do! It is all about slowing down living more intentionally, and focusing on the beauty that surrounds us every day.
