I have provided photography as health care fine art to hospitals, medical offices, dentist offices, clinics, waiting rooms, conference centers, rehabilitation centers, and mental health facilities that are seeking to promote a healing, tranquil environment. Beautiful photographs of nature have proven benefits to evidence based design projects providing stress relief, relaxation, and comfort.

Nature imagery promotes wellness, connectivity, well-being and harmony.

Art Consultants, Corporate & Business Artwork

Fine art Nature prints are useful for accomplishing your goal in creating a peaceful, elegant, soothing, relaxing atmosphere for your interior design project. Suggested areas are: conference rooms, executive offices, hallways, walkways, meeting centers, public sitting areas, auditoriums, and lobbies.

Nature prints

For any area promoting stress relief, a relaxing environment, and a peaceful setting... Infuse nature's energy by using photography for coffee shops, cafe, restaurants, meditation rooms, yoga studios, nature centers, schools and libraries.

Abstract Nature Art for home decor

With a particular passion for abstracts, I enjoy working with leaves, ice, rocks, water and many other of nature's elements. Be sure to visit my abstracts gallery. Many of these images have been labeled Zen-like, and promote a connectivity with nature found in many Zen and Bhuddist studies.
