Composition. It's what I try to get right every time I look through my lens. Balancing light, texture and color are so important to me. Sometimes I like my subject so much that I try talking myself into liking it even when it's missing the elements for a perfect composition. Eventually I end up deleting it and know that there will be many more opportunities that perfect photo. The richness and subtle light of the greens in these new seedling photos are just what I need as I wait for some consistent spring weather to make its way to Michigan. Did you know you could order these prints? In fact you can order any of my photos you find on my website in any size. I especially like them mounted on a bamboo stand-out board. Email me for more information and pricing.
My art often begins with a single photograph, a reflection of my eye—an eye that is deeply attracted to the texture, pattern, and shape found in nature. Whether it is the intricate pattern on the bark of a tree, the gentle curve of a woman’s breast, or the smooth, shiny shapes of pebbles along the shores of Lake Superior, I seek to display the wonder of creation in its purest form.
From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course. From photograph to canvas to sculpture, my hands become dirty, my fingernails caked with the mediums of art, and my heart becomes filled with joy as each piece blossoms, quite organically, into what it was meant to be.
I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it is not always obvious. But, quite possibly, the viewer will see in a new way and will feel a new appreciation for the organic elements around us.
