Artist | Professional | Photography
United States
Current Residence: Bethesda, Maryland, USA (20 years)
Previous: Montréal, Québec, Canada (15 years) + Geneva, Switzerland (1 short year in 1989 where I sponged a whole lot from le très beautiful French language!) + Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (born and lived 2 years)

Inspiration: My Dearly Departed Father Gérard Raymond :icongerryray: Je me souviendrai toujours

Words to live by: "Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend."
- Albert Camus

I will be leaving soon for a 3 week trip to the United Kingdom. Starting with Wales where my mother was born, then Scotland and the Lake District in England. Super excited to revisit my British & Celtic heritage, it's literally been half a lifetime since I touched ground there beside a couple stopovers in London & the Channel Islands in 2011.

Hoping to revel in the sights of old castles & ancient ruins harder to come by here in America, plus many beautiful waterfalls as a matter of photographic obsession =D Only fitting I should leave you with my latest deviation entitled Happy Moss Falls derived from an epic trip to Iceland in May of last year, and a very positive outlook for my upcoming UK adventures in May of this year. Stay tuned in June for more photos!



PS: I would like to thank Jennifer Leonard :iconsunsetrising-art: for her constant support. Someone you might be familiar with from my previous journal entry in promoting her illustrations, here I am promoting her again :) (Smile) Not just for shameless publicity, but a genuine appreciation for her artistic talent & amazing character. She works extremely hard at her craft beyond the grind of a full time job, so I hope you might take a few moments to visit her gallery including these wonderful images:
