  1. Your photos always birghten my day. You have your own style and your photos are recognizable which is an amazing quality to have for a photographer.

  2. Karen your pictures are like the reflections and dreams we have after we’ve experienced the real world, they convey how we feel more than what we see, quite wonderful

  3. Your ability with capturing motion and really the essence of nature is astounding…surreal. There is something so pleasing to the eye that makes me sit, stare and wonder. Such a good feeling.
