Interesting fact about the Best Friends print was that the print was Parade Magazine’s Cover for 1990. What makes my pieces peaceful is the idea that no technology is present. It seems “dated,” but before Macbooks and cell phones there was a time where the joys in everyday life were all you needed to be happy; the present and who was close around was all that matter.
"I like to play with my space in this photography. Morning Serenity plays with the lighting of the sunrise, length of the dock, and the water to make the viewer feel calm and let the eye wander around due to all the space."
The Balloon Boy
The Balloon Boy’s subject is the boy and his colorful balloons by the length of the rustic home, which draws attention across the entire print. Although the house is rustic it still gives a smooth texture, aiding the eye to move across the plane.
"Yarn is my only black and white piece. Even though the print has the subject (yarn) close to the view, the darkness around the subjects forces the viewer to look closer and examine what is in the shadows—which is more yarn."
