I was always enamored by landscape paintings, even when I was a child. There was a desire to walk into those canvases and see the world the artists had rendered so beautifully. I quickly learned, however, that I could only view those worlds through the artist’s creation—whether that be because it was a painting of nostalgia, or because the image the artist rendered never really existed except on canvas.
I try to capture some of that same magic with my photographs. I want to evoke that same response and show a world that makes a viewer want to walk right through the photograph and into the scene itself. I modify my photographs to appear more like a painting to intentionally play with those ideas of nostalgia, while maintaining the original composition of the photograph, thus showing the world as it was the moment I snapped the picture. Nature tends to be fluid and ever-changing, and if we don’t hold on to what we have, it’ll be gone.
Please note, you can purchase postcards along with other items without increasing the cost of shipping. However, purchasing postcards alone will add a shipping fee.
If you'd like us to mail you a postcard via USPS First Class mail (and nothing else), please send a request by email to email@example.com and we can accommodate your request. You will be charged only for the postcard(s) and First Class mail postage. This is the most economical option.
