On the road with Uncle Roy.

I love to travel with my Uncle Roy. His experience as a professional show skater lead him around the world, traveling to over 40 countries as a performer in the touring ice show Holiday On Ice. Ever since we started sharing a photography studio back in 1993 in Minneapolis. So we are family and we share a passion for the journey. Roy loves beauty so I would follow him anywhere! The thing about Roy is that he is genuinely curious about everything… well perhaps not everything, but he asks a lot of questions and he researches!

Next week we are departing together next week for our dream trip… after seven years of producing my first film – The Fabulous Ice Age – we have not been able to travel to anything non-figure skating! So I imagine that by the end of next week we will both be jumping up and down – in Burma!

Every adventure is different. These pictures were made at our visit to The Milwaukee Art Museum back in 2007.

The Milwaukee Art Museum information says:

“The Milwaukee Art Museum collects and preserves art, presenting it to the community as a vital source of inspiration and education.

30,000 works of art. 400,000+ visitors a year. 125 years of collecting art. From its roots in Milwaukee’s first art gallery in 1888, the Museum has grown today to be an icon for Milwaukee and a resource for the entire state.

The 341,000-square-foot Museum includes the War Memorial Center (1957) designed by Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen, the Kahler Building (1975) by David Kahler, and the Quadracci Pavilion (2001) created by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.”
