Artist Statement: Primarily, most of my art is created almost entirely from ‘scratch.’ I grow most of my florals from seed in my backyard garden and wait patiently for the blooms to mature. A basic camera + natural sunlight + online digital art tools = an original photo of my flowers transformed into art. The final results often resemble an oil or watercolor painting. I also photograph natural landscapes, scenes and storefronts of Amherst MA, nature, cats, horses and any other creatures along the way that would like to smile or pose for the camera.
