… Sugar Loaf

In the early to late 70”s Sugar Loaf Mt. Resort was my refuge. Born and raised in Maple City, it became my connection to an exciting world, outside the sheltered walls of Leelanau. As a native, with no travel experience, I never understood the beauty of our Peninsula, and that one day it would be recognized as the most beautiful place in America. As a teenager, I just knew that I wanted to explore further, this world that Sugar Loaf introduced me to. Working at the “Loaf” created the financial resource to pursue my vision of a college degree, and then an MBA. More importantly…Sugar Loaf became the anchor of my character, introducing me into a new world, that I chose to explore. Today, I have a home at the base of the mountain. I will always respect what she gave to me.
Since the resort’s shutdown, I have wandered the mountain a few times. With the lens of my camera and an impressionistic vision, I have created images that reflect so many memories. I want to share them with you.

Each of us has our own personal definition of what art is… It is a very powerful experience when a piece of work engages a sense of pleasure within our soul. This is what art is supposed to do. This is what I seek to do.
