The Art

About The Artist

I don't take pictures just to capture an image.  I take pictures because there are ideas, images, words, feelings, emotions, statements that I am gifted to release. My directive is to "set the captives free" and this is the way I fulfill that calling. My art is not for everyone but it is for those who want to know freedom. It is for those who face struggles, pain, and deep emotion in wide varieties. This is for all the hurt and broken who need hope.

Some people say that some of my work is dark or too intense. I agree. Many of us have been in those dark places and need to know that just as deep as the darkness is...Light is even brighter. Much of my art is a reflection of my own life, struggles, journeys, healings. When you see my work, you see my journey in this life.

This year has brought out deeper and new ideas. I look forward to shooting and sharing those with you in the upcoming year.

The camera and graphics pen are my tools to healing. I hope these images will be tools to your healing.

"The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour [implements] of light."

Blessings and love, Dana
