Art in Healthcare Transformed by the Healing Power of Nature Images

Being a photographer, capturing the beauty I see in the world, is something that has always come easily to me.  I’m drawn to forests and oceans, find tranquility in miles of open fields where wildflowers and natural grasses paint a pattern on the landscape; these are the types of nature images that have the ability to improve healthcare design and result in positive patient outcomes.

I love how landscapes can tell the story of a place, whisper of the people and animals who’ve passed through, plant life that has intricacies and secrets of its own.  And I love being able to photograph these things for the purpose of comfort and healing in healthcare.

I’ve felt the positive effects of being immersed in such natural beauty firsthand.  Sometimes I feel like a living study of how nature can soothe and almost instantly take the stress away from a typical, hectic day of work stresses and daily responsibilities. I love the idea that I can capture these breathtaking views and bring them to spaces to create a sense of openness, beauty, connection and hope.

It makes sense that nature images have been used in healthcare as a way to speed up recovery time and ease anxiety.  I believe in the importance of art in healthcare design, and I’m passionate about displaying my nature images in hospitals and spaces where I know such beauty can have a positive and healing impact.

I also love collaborating with clients to help them create their own unique spaces for healing and growth.  My background in evidence-based design and fine art photography have allowed me to work across the country in various healthcare settings, and I’m exited about creating more of these spaces in hospitals, work places and homes.  Contact me and we can discuss the possibilities.
