The Future is Rosy and Golden

The Future is Rosy and Golden

I saw a photo of a sunset as seen from under a bridge -- and I found myself unexpectedly falling into a kind of alternate reality. A bridge support was the largest feature of the photo with the warm sun spreading over the water and distant buildings that could be seen under that bridge. I set about...

Isolation

Isolation

This artwork is composed of different elements from photos I've taken over the years. They are blended here in a way to express disassociation and isolation. Art should always be interpreted by the viewer but in this work I deliberately wanted to express a feeling by using my personal symbolism. A...

Hot Summer Nights

Hot Summer Nights

There is something magical about summer nights in the city. I was inspired to make this artwork after a recent trip where I enjoyed just such a an evening. I wanted to recreate something inviting -- a place for two lovers to kiss, a place for friends to talk, or even just a place for one person to...

Psychotropic Dreaming

Psychotropic Dreaming

This work represents a merging of my creative fires: I love to quilt and have found ways to incorporate the idea of quilt blocks into my digital works; I love the ocean almost as much as I love the air I breathe, and I love creating an unexpected and whimsical element into my art.

Woody on the Beach

Woody on the Beach

This compilation was inspired by a trip to Dana Point. The surfers drew my attention and later, when I took a picture of this Woody, I knew I had to recreate the feeling of that summer day and put this beautiful classic car back out onto the beach and into the sun!

Night Flight

Night Flight

I love all birds. Their forms and symbology are woven into folklore all around the world. Storks are associated with purity, renewal, birth, creativity, longevity, prosperity, protection, and good luck. Here flies a stork at night, silhouetted against a bright full moon. Where is it going? What is...

Inspired by my recent (and first) vacation in Paris, I want to convey the feeling of the joy and magic I felt at first seeing the Eiffel Tower. It was a beautiful fall day and felt like I was floating in a dream!

The Ocean Calls

The Ocean Calls

The ocean calls to me always... I can see it, smell it, hear it, feel it, and taste it just by thinking of the word. When I feel a stress coming on, all I have to do is visualize floating on the ocean and I feel calm. It is no wonder then that I would want to make art of it. The components of this...

Conversation with Crow Person

Conversation with Crow Person

I love all birds but I feel a special connection to crows and ravens. I photographed this raven on a winter day in a grocery store parking lot. I was talking to the bird and taking photos as it perched on the grocery cart return corral. He seemed interested in the sounds made by me and the camera a...

Northern Cardinal in the Palms

Northern Cardinal in the Palms

I spotted this beautiful and curious bird while vacationing in Hawaii during the summer. I took this photo knowing I would rework it into a digital painting. He looked so expectant that I wish I'd had some food tidbit to share with him.

Mandalay Bay

Mandalay Bay

Mandalay Bay was inspired by the actual Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas. I photographed this scene in the pool area then isolated the my favorite aspects and added artistic digital elements and overlays to echo and enhance the beauty I saw at the time.

Bow Lake, Banff, Canada

This beautiful lake will hypnotize you with its blue and green waters. I'm told that the weather affects the color so I'm very happy that on this day, with big, fluffy clouds and bright, warm sun that it shows all its colors!
