Winged Dancer

Winged Dancer

I love the beauty and grace of this dancer's pose. I added wings and lots of stars and grunge to give her an other-worldly feel.

Blue Hydrangea

Blue Hydrangea

Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers. I visit Cape Cod, Massachusetts every Summer and I always take photos of these gorgeous flowering bushes. To me they represent those sweet, glorious days of Summer in New England.

I composed this piece during a very rainy, cold spell this Spring in New England. I had taken the flower photo recently and I wanted to create a piece that was warm, bright and cheerful.

Broken

Broken

I had this beautiful model image and I had taken some photos of a dried out hydrangea in my yard. I fashioned a hat out of the hydrangea and then decided to make the model look like a broken china doll.

Watching the Tourists

Watching the Tourists

I shot this photo while on a gondola ride in Venice. I don't think I even noticed the man looking out the window until I looked at the photo later. I love the juxtaposition of the other gondola with the man looking out at what is going on outside his window.

Carroll Baker Collage

I picked up a vintage magazine advertisement page in a local antique shop with an advertisement for Foster Grant sunglasses. I love the glamorous old photos along with the sayings so I wanted to make a colorful collage with a somewhat vintage feel.

Newburyport Tulips

I shot some photos of these beautiful tulips in the seaside town of Newburyport, Massachusetts. I wanted to give them a more abstract painterly feel in this piece to show off the vibrant colors.

A trip to Rome last year inspired me to take lots of photos of the eternal city. I love combining my own photos with textures, type and painterly effects to express the overwhelming beauty, magnificence and history of Rome.

Fading Snow Queen

Fading Snow Queen

This piece was inspired by the feeling that beauty can fade on the outside, but essentially comes from within and shines out. I also wanted to give a feel of the Winter season.

I started with the image of the woman from Teddi Rutschman's Scandalous collection. I built the composition around her and her color palette.
