Pin-Ups at The Art Station, Big Shanty

It has become a yearly tradition that my daughter and I work on some art pieces together to put into this annual all-ages art show at The Art Station. I usually work on something different than I would normally exhibit, and just enjoy the process of taking time to create together. This year, we themed our entries to go together, as "underwater" pieces. We each created a Gyotaku (fish) print, which we worked on during my summer Earth Art session, and then Gemma painted "Sea Ball" with watercolors and homemade rock paints, and I re-worked a 3-color etching I had created a few years ago. I had been thinking about how I could update some of my older work that I have sitting around, and this was the perfect time to do some experimenting. I went back into the piece and added a little watercolor, and homemade rock, mineral, and patina paints to it, to add some texture, depth, and more color variation. 

This is a fun little show that is family-friendly, and will be up until September 29th for viewing. 


Bill & Pat (50th Anniversary)

I recently had a wonderful photo session (albeit a very hot one!), celebrating this couples 50th wedding anniversary. Since their family and friends were in town for the event, we spent some time capturing these two individuals, their children's families, and the group(s) as a whole. Here's a (small) snippet from our session...


Metro Montage (Opening Reception)

The opening night reception of the exhibition looked to be a success- It was surely a packed house! Thanks to those who came out and said hello. If you didn't make it, it's on view until September 10th.

P.S.- My photograph is also for sale at the museum, so if you're interested, be sure to ask the front desk for more info. or contact me directly. 


Upcoming Exhibition- Metro Montage XVII

Leather + linen + bone = Sneak peek of the work I have in the upcoming Metro Montage exhibit at the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art! Opening reception is Saturday, July 8th, 6:00-8:00pm. Hope to see you there!


Something different...

Sometimes, an odd little gig comes around that is different from what I normally take on, but I get excited to jump into something new. A little while ago I got a small job working with a client who is writing a trade book, and needed a certain studio shot for it. Here's a tiny preview, but I won't get to share the finished product with you until probably later this year, as the release date is currently fall 2017 ;)


Earth Art Classes (Winter, part 2)

The last half of our winter session included classes on "wax", "creativity", and "fiber arts". Here's a look at all the great things we did and learned about!

More photos from our Earth Art classes can be found HERE, and more info. on upcoming classes can be found HERE.

Thanks to fellow photographer Kim at Oh Happy Photography for capturing these great moments from our classes!
