The photographer from the Tonto National Forest in Mesa, according to a press release, who was immersed in nature including camping, rock-hounding, fishing hunting, uses her background in nature as an inspiration for her photography.

From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the artwork will be displayed at Four Peaks Mining Company located in OdySea in the Desert, 9500 E. Via De Ventura, Scottsdale.

Her photography is said to represent Arizona, “where the most wicked ghost towns and landscapes tell their own stories,” according to the release.

Four Peaks Mining Company has a variety of visual experiences and education on geology, gemstones and minerals so people can learn about the last commercial amethyst mine in the U.S., including the largest collection of Arizona amethyst and jewelry containing gems from Arizona and around the world.
