Iíve always been interested in art and Iíve been especially drawn to color, texture, and shapes. Since I received a digital camera several years ago, Iíve become intrigued with photography. I love taking photographs in the forest preserves and parks surrounding Chicago and at the botanic gardens. I started taking photos of nature primarily, but in the past year, Iíve become fascinated with creating totally new images through the technique of editing my original photographs. My photographic art is based on my original photographs. I frequently start by layering several of them. Then I use various editing tools, filters and textures, to create a completely new image. Sometimes I simply use a filter and texture to give the photograph a softer look.- sometimes giving it the look of an oil painting. There are several photo editors that I enjoy experimenting with to see what unique images I can create. Iím constantly looking for new ways to express my creativity.
A new interest involves creating,fun, joyful images directly from the computer- this digital art frequently has a whimsical, childlike quality to it. My digital art originates from my computer drawings and my imagination. I hope my artwork will bring a smile to your face and brighten your day.
Thank you very much for stopping by and for sharing in my work.
