I make my art in order to share what I see in the world – especially the beauty of nature, the wonders of the natural world, the amazing things that people have made. I enjoy photographs and I enjoy taking photographs. My mother had a friend who was a photographer and I just loved the images he created. Now I try to do the same thing. I do this in photo cards and matted prints. I enjoy finding just the right “finishing touch” of color or texture in a mat, frame or card stock, to go with my photo.
I love looking at color, texture, shape, design, and usefulness. I want to capture the wonderful way things fit together and inspire me. I see beauty all around me, I try to capture just a portion of it so that I can share that beauty with others. I feel that a photo card is a wonderful way to share that beauty, so I like putting my photos into cards. Sometimes I enjoy having a piece of beauty on the wall, thus the prints.
My best friend, Denise Gilbert, and I started our business, Artistry in Cards and Prints as a way to share the wonder and beauty of what we see around us. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
