I can remember having a Barbie camera when I was a little girl. Look at me, look at me - I want to take your picture! Why do I take pictures now?? I do it because I want to capture, celebrate and immortalize the beauty around me. Maybe Iíll see something you have never seen (or at least not the way I saw it) and the beauty will touch you Ė or maybe it will spark a nice memory for you. I donít just do it for others, though ó Iím selfish; photography relaxes me, challenges me, amuses me, inspires me, and brings me great joy.
I print my fine art on very high quality photographic paper and then I paint on a canvas coating. This allows me to frame my art without using glass, which lessens distractions, and also gives the art a painterly feel. I also am able to expand my artistic inspiration by being proficient in digital editing software, which allows me to creative special effects to allow my creativity to show through. I love it when people donít believe me when I tell them my photograph is not a painting! Visit www.paintyourpicture.net. i've just started a new business where I take favorite PHOTO and work my magic on it :)
I can output to almost any size (from 5x7 inches to 6x12 feet) and all of my limited edition work is signed and numbered. My art can also be seen (and touched!) at Art of Oconee, Lake Oconee, Georgia, where I am one of 14 artists/owners( http://www.artofoconee.com). My Floridian work is also for sale in the gift shops at the Ft. Myers airport (and hopefully more locations soon!). I am also available for commissioned work.
