As the arctic blast hit the Midwest of the United States, the individual snowflakes that fell through the storms were full of amazing art. Captured at night by white led light reflecting off the designs which brought forth color and art defined in a way not normally seen.

I have enjoyed taking pictures all my life. In 2018, I captured a snowflake that looked like a flower. The snowflakes inspired me to pursue macro photography. I have spent a lot of time, night and day, capturing the beauty and tiny details of the smallest flakes that land within my yard, trees, deck, and space around. My desire is to share the beauty of this piece of nature with the world. My photographs have become the illustrations in my new book series, Washed as White as Snow, released in 2019. I still enjoy all photography because I can remember passing moments for years to come.
