Artist Statement

"As a fine art and travel photographer, my goal is to share captured moments of light and life in glorious locations to encourage people to take flight. For art to really live, beyond the image on paper, you have to understand its spirit. I’m addicted to discovering new secrets in historic places. Sexy, gritty, intoxicating.

I custom print each image in my studio on museum fine art archival paper. Then I enhance the images by using an encaustic process. This method refers to applying hot beeswax over a photographic image. The base materials used in encaustic work is a combination of beeswax and Damar Resin.

After applying the wax and resin, I paint on top of the wax with pastels to further enhance my photographs to look more like paintings. Beeswax and resins are ancient ingredients from nature, I blend old and new to create an original work of art. The vintage hues and textures reflect the life- force of the architecture and the history of the locations.

This technique is a perfect match with my classic style of photography. I’m attracted to the form and elegance of objects when they’re balanced. I love the feeling of waiting for that perfect moment, flawless lighting, then pressing the shutter to steal away a thrilling experience that I can share with others."


I purchased a couple pieces of landscape art from MK Envision and was impressed with the selection, the staff, and their customer service. Highly recommend."

"This was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Kelsey & Michelle helped us to select the best photo from several choices, and then they created a mock up of our photo on our unusually shaped wall area. We were really pleased with the result and have had lots of complements on it."

I had been searching for almost two years for wall art to hang above my sofa, and one day, I googled modern coastal wall art and a couple of clicks in, found MK Envision Galleries! I had been waiting to find the perfect piece, and I did. I saw "Shore Break At Sunrise" and it immediately spoke to me, so I knew almost instantly that I would be buying it. I was certain it would be as beautiful in person as it looked online (and it is) but had a couple of questions before committing to the purchase. Response time was quick, communication was informative, fun and professional...Start to finish, just an awesomely great experience!
