"Wilderness to me is a spiritual necessity. When my son was killed by a drunk driver, it was to the wilderness that I fled in hope of regaining my serenity and equilibrium. The mysterious spiritual experience of being close to nature helped to restore my soul. It was during that time, I discovered the intimate beauty of Florida. My experience reinforced my sense of dedication to use my art form of photography as an inspiration for others to work together to save places of spiritual sanctuary for future generations."
