The basis of this image is a collection of fireworks photos taken at dusk on July 4th in my small home town. I have always been mesmerized by fireworks. I love the streaks of color firing through the night sky! And as much as I love photography, I have to say that I was torn between just enjoying the fireworks and photographing them. This one year the camera nut in me won out and I enjoyed each long exposure capturing the crayola box of colors flashing through the sky.
Later it would occur to me that these photos could be the basis for an enjoyable art project. You see, my small town fireworks display is understandably small, so what you see is multiple long exposures grafted onto one another, sort of a one shot best-of-the-night image....
Life is full of happy surprises. After just over a decade working in the 9 to 5 cube world, I threw caution to the wind to follow my dreams of being a full time visual artist. That was five years ago! Is it easy? No, but something truly worthwhile is rarely simple.
My body of work is wide ranging from photographic scenes of far away places, more near and dear locations, and more fanciful artwork. It's all crafted with a heartfelt love for finding the beauty in little captured moments. My artwork also hangs on walls near and far from private homes to businesses who have chosen to decorate with my art.
Whether you've purchased one piece or a house full or you simply admire and share with your friends, your patronage of my art is...
