As a small person I had the run of woods, fields, and acres of natural habitats. I have a lifelong passion for horses, dogs, cats, trees, woods, and I loved to draw, color and sketch as a child. However, I never quite caught the ability to create on paper what I saw with my eyes and heart.
Digital photography and art have become the canvases that give expressive vision to me. It helps that my husband, http://scottcarltonphotos.artistwebsites.com/index.html is a professional photographer. Over our 45+ years together, his patient guidance and photographer's 'eye' have taught me much about the use of light, exposure and technique in achieving an image that matches what the my eyes and mind take in in the natural world.
As for abstracts, I am a believer in symbolism and play whenever the opportunity allows. Enjoy. Thanks for visiting.
