An “Eye.” For as long as I have been taking photographs, people have remarked that I have a natural “eye” for composition, lighting and subjects.
I remember when I was in grade school, I was always drawing and doodling in class. One of the first pictures my teacher hung was an outdoor landscape.
From the top right hand corner where I placed the sun, a series of intersecting circles fell to the ground. When I was asked what they were I replied “Sunlight, just like you see on TV.”
Even then I was so used to seeing things through the lens of a camera that sunbeam were represented by their refractions.
The following images are examples of my work. I have begun transforming the photographs by transferring them to canvases and embellishing them with acrylic, wax, aluminum, gold or silver leafing and original poetry. Heavy, gallery-grade canvases approximately 1/2 inch thick sized 24″x 24″ or 24″x 36.” Framable but not necessary.
