Sleeping Bear Dunes, Pure Michigan, Elmira

Look out tower, Lake Michigan

I don’t have a bucket list, but if I did, this park would be on it.

I captured this stunning scenery at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore near Elmira, Michigan. Stationed atop in the sand, with camera in hand, looking over the edge of the dunes. The vastness of Lake Michigan, and the seemingly endless cliff of sand, made me feel very small. The sky was painted with beautiful clouds, but the wind was picking up speed. To our dismay, the sprinkles from a partly cloudy day quickly turned to a down pour. Ahhhh, Pure Michigan!

Do you have a favorite place to vacation in Michigan?

Thanks for stopping by, you are truly awesome!

Go Back in Time

 

I wish I could go back in time and give my 29-year-old artistic self some advice. For one, I would say, try not to be too “judgy”.  I believe, as artists we strive to do our best, but at times, form a habit of judging ourselves too harshly. Do your best and the rest will fall into place, is the advise I would give to newly graduated art students.

This is a design for a spray bottle I created while working at Kmart World Headquarters in 1992. It’s interesting to look back and observe how some pattern trends are still popular. Trends have their place, which brings to mind Authenticity. It is important to love what you do, and in the process of experimenting —find what inspires you to “be you”— be authentic and the desire to create from your own ideas will come easier.

What advice would you wish to give to new grads?
