Welcome to a celebration of the natural world through a special collection of photographs, digital art, poetry, essays, audio and more by Western North Carolina photographers and amateur naturalists Tibby Dozier Steedly and Homer Steedly. We invite you to browse TibArt Images in which we try to reflect the beauty and spirituality of nature from the mountains to the sea.
Homer and I find peace, awe and companionship in the wild and hope that the creative spirit of the universe is reflected, if only a little, in our photographs and on this web site.
Carry with you each moment the realization of joy in the everyday sights and sounds that surround us. Stop, be still and watch. Creation and the magic it brings are there waiting.

or my pain. Sanctuary. Connected to the Silence everywhere.
