About the photography in this issue:

Henry Domke, MD, is an artist who creates nature art for hospitals. He took a nontraditional path to get where he is today. While still in high school, Domke enrolled in art school but decided to pursue medicine instead, and he worked as a family physician in Jefferson City, Missouri, for 25 years.

By the mid-1990s, his enduring passion for art led him to formalize his art training. He studied independently with Annette Weintraub, an art professor at City College in New York, and William Hawk, a painting professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Hawk convinced him to enter the university’s graduate arts program, where he studied from 1998 to 2001 while he temporarily reduced his hours at his medical practice.

Another defining factor in Domke’s life is the Prairie Garden Trust, a 600-acre property that he has lived on since 1981. It is a nature restoration project begun by his parents in central Missouri, and much of his art is based on images taken there.
Recently he has been expanding beyond his backyard to find inspiration and has photographs from coast-to-coast. In addition to local wildflowers and wildlife, his collection includes coastal landscapes, mountainous terrains, desert scenes, and sea shells.

His life had come full circle and he said goodbye to medicine in 2007 and pursued art full time. Today he tries to find beauty in the ordinary and create images that inspire and heal.
