About Our Art
Currently I am working on a photo series of Heritage Breed Farm Animals. Many of these animals are in danger of extinction, so I am visiting small Missouri farmers with rare breeds of livestock and poultry. It is my goal to eventually do a book to help increase awareness of endangered farm animals and the small farmers who are working to preserve these breeds in need of our help. It is my privelage to donate a portion of my proceeds to the Livestock Conservancy, which is an organization working to protect rare breeds of farm animals through education, research and breeding programs.
It is my dream to raise community awareness of rural life and sustainable agriculture through my original photography. Although my photos are not complex, I hope anyone no matter where they may live, will feel a connectedness to the land which provides for us and a simpler way of life.
By the time I was ten years old I knew how much I loved the outdoors and wanted to be a farmer. I’ve always enjoyed taking photos but really discovered a love for it in the past several years. With a Bachelors Degree in Animal Science and a small farm of my own, which I share with an assortment of animals, it seems as if I always have something to photograph.
I have been able to blend my love for the outdoors and animals with my passion for photography. For me taking a picture is a way to preserve a memory forever of something that I found to be funny, beautiful, or just caught my eye. I have been thrilled to learn, through the encouragement of friends and family that others also enjoy the images I capture. I hope you enjoy too.
