My artwork focuses on subtleties in form, color and movement. I try to show the viewer beauty in simple organic images and shapes. When you see the different media I work in you will notice strong connections between them.

Had a fabulous day yesterday!

 I am always trying to figure out how to combine my interest of nature, art and photography. I decided to make organic, free form cages for some very delicate seed pods I had been saving. Then I photographed them many times from different angles and under different light. These are the ones I really like! They were photographed under a simple cheap desk lamp.

I've been sketching and have discovered the beauty of combining drawings with photography. This is a fun new way for me to photograph ordinary small objects in nature and give them importance. I also loved the light in these particular photos.

Experimental Photography!

I  used my Ipad as a light table today. Placing a few items on it and photographing them proved to be very interesting. I got really bright white backgrounds when the flash did not mess up with the reflection. I will try some more tomorrow.

I'm seeing everything this week. I mean there is interesting stuff to look at all day long!
Here is a little study of some old paint brushes.

Experimenting with lights and shadows and positive and negative space today!

These photos are stripped of almost all color and weight. I think the leaves feel like they are almost non existent.

I am continuing to experimenting with macro photography, this time taking small objects found in nature and placing them on white paper. This puts the focus solely on that object. I like the simplicity and the calm of the absence of a background. Please check out my new page: Focus Photographs
