...no lighthouse can help you

Lighthouses exist at the intersection of safety and danger, illustrating the delicate balance we face in life. They inspire us to find our own guiding light, to persevere through challenges, and to seek refuge amidst the storms of existence. They have the ability to remind us of our capacity to overcome adversity, to find purpose, and to guide others through darkness. By embracing our inner light, we can illuminate the lives of those around us and navigate the seas of life with resilience and grace. However, to benefit we must keep our eyes open.
I spend my time between two countries. From the rugged beauty of Michigan's Upper Peninsula to the picturesque landscapes of the Lower Peninsula I have the opportunity to capture lighthouses nestled amidst sandy beaches, rocky shores, and charming coastal towns. The changing seasons and weather conditions add depth and variety to my images, creating a rich tapestry of moods and atmospheres.
On the coasts that surround the United Kingdom stunning lighthouses perch on dramatic cliffs or nestle in quaint seaside villages. Through my lens, I can capture the timeless allure, maritime heritage, and evocative stories that these lighthouses embody. However, my goal is not just to document their physical beauty but also convey their symbolic significance pointing us to the real beacon that will guide us to safety, and inner peace amidst the storms of life.

54" x 36" Gallery Acrylic Facemount
Acrylic facemounts are very popular mediums for photographers, art galleries, and fine art applications. Since an acrylic facemount has greater longevity, durability, and quality of materials, it is also ideal for creating wall art for the home or corporate art.
Your image is printed on archival photographic paper using pigment-based inks with Epson professional printers. Utilizing all-new high-performance printhead technology, the print colors and quality are fine art and industry-best. We add a subtle glow to your print, with a metallic print upgrade - a perfect effect for this image.
On our Gallery Acrylic Facemount, there is no added space between the acrylic and the print. This enhances the image and its colors and reflects them brilliantly in your home or gallery. This vibrant option's unique style has easily become a favorite among professional artists and galleries.
The materials alone produce superior quality and color accuracy; the resolution, depth, and vibrancy of colors on photo paper are unmatched. The photo print is then facemounted to a quality acrylic using an opti-clear, pH-neutral adhesive with UV inhibitors.
