Celia Roberts Photography

Celia Roberts is a professional photographer/artist whose work reveals her interest in and sensitivity to nature, as well as special cultures and populations in developing countries and the U.S.

"For me, photography has been about learning how to see, and by seeing, I mean becoming increasingly aware of the subtle beauty in nature and in our own lives. When we begin to see beauty in these places, in the simple things, then our lives become far more magical, more satisfying. Through my images, I want people to be gently reminded of those simple, beautiful aspects of nature that surround each of us, and to be more deeply in relationship with and committed to one another's well-being, wordwide."

Katherine's studio is also her gallery space, with her work available for purchase. She teaches and mentors in these media and creative concepts: graphite, color pencil, Sumi-e, ink, watercolor, silk paper-fusion, monoprinting; Design Elements and Principles, and Assessment/Critique for all visual media; Design Processes for fiber and fabric. Joe's writing encompasses a life-time of nature and philosophical essays, career-oriented biography, and nature-based science fiction.
