The Early Years Sexton Landscape Collection

Recognizing the power of nature's beauty to quell the tempest that raged in my soul, I took up landscape photography in 2009.


Dedicated to the memory of my sister, Debbie


I came to these gardens many times in the years following the loss of my sister. I came to think, seek understanding, wrestle emotion, and remember.

The symbolism I find in the Morning Light series gave my mind a place to rest. There was purpose and beauty in the remembrances I had of her.

"As the leaves fall away in autumn, one after another, till the bough sees all its spoils upon the ground, so there the evil seed of Adam: one by one they cast themselves from that shore at signals, like a bird at its call." (Dante)

Autumn Leaves

Ancient Grounds

Experiencing new loss in 2010, I again sought the solace found in nature and began photographing in and around Southern Utah.

In each of these places, I remembered the strength of her will and generosity of her love.

Life has a way of breaking us. Those who wont break, it kills. (paraphrased, E. Hemingway)

It broke me to let go.
