My art explorations began in 2007 after a medical retirement. One afternoon I came across my old point and shoot camera and thought, “what the heck, nothing ventured nothing gained’; so with camera in hand I stepped outside into my flower garden….my healing had begun!
After reviewing hundreds of photos it was clear that macro flower photography had become a serious endeavor. However, I soon realized that having no formal art or business training I was facing a steep learning curve. It was then that I joined a local artist guild and my “art education” began.
Over the next few years my traditional notions of photography were challenged by both the digital and software innovations. This transition has not only excited me but opened a door to visual exploration that sparked an overwhelming desire to create…I had changed as had my art!
What makes my art stand out from other artists is the use of my original photographic images in my digital art vs. the use of internet/software images.
