About efy

efy is a Contemplative Photographer and published author. She has traveled the country speaking on the Transformative Journey. She is a Spiritual Director to others who are seeking such a path. A native of  Tuscarawas County, Ohio, she has always felt a powerful relationship to nature. With an Associates Degree from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, efy began her love affair with the natural world with a 35mm camera, capturing spirits of light, color and movement in the beautiful natural areas of the county. Now, she uses a digital camera to capture nature’s “rarely seen prayers” and “dances.” Her work has been described as “moving,” “unusual” and “spiritual.” Light beings or nature spirits dance in her photographs, illuminations appear – some comfort, some surprise.

“I feel nature calling to me,” she says. “I make it a rule that the image – be it a heron flying low over a lake, human toes squishing in the sand at the bottom of a clear creek, light dancing down a waterfall from a heart-shaped rock, or a flaming red Maple leaf against a mossy rock – must speak first to my heart and soul before I point the camera’s lens. Nature is my teacher, my guide into deeper listening and living.”

efy shares her transformative journey as speaker, author, spiritual companion, how she walks through her daily life with an open heart. “I speak about trust and listening to the Divine in my daily life. How incredible my path has been even through the shattering of my heart more than once. I have learned to trust in full faith and gratitude. I can feel the ‘nudge’ of the Divine and this is my guidance, my walk, my call. I embrace this and share my light.”

HEALING THROUGH DIVINE LIGHT: A Journey in Photos is her first book, in which her wondrous photographs are full of the sense that the Divine is everywhere. efy makes the case that the Divine reveals itself in the most unusual of circumstances. She was searching for physical healing, which she received, yet she was also gifted with an emotional, psychological and spiritual healing as well. Nature and the spirits in nature were partners in her healing.
