Jumping off the New River Gorge Bridge, in West Virginia on "Bridge Day". Shot with a Canon Powershot Pro 1 camera. Prices vary by size.

I have studied and experimented with photography since my teens. While in college, (in Philadelphia, PA), although I majored in mathematics, I also regularly attended whatever art workshops were available. In 1975, my husband and I moved from New Jersey to West Virginia where I taught college mathematics and later worked as a database programmer. During this period I discovered that I was able to combine my two greatest interests (photography and computers) into a new art medium. My photography work expanded into new areas during this time period as I incorporated innovative ideas and new artistic visions into this approach to art. In 2004, I established my company, LightScapes, and began the transition to creating digital artistry as a full-time endeavor. In the beginning of 2006 I completed this move and now devote all my time to the creation of photographic/digital art.I consider my work as having 3 main styles - Black & White, Traditional & Fine Art Photography, and Digital Artistry.In all cases, I begin by shooting my images with the idea of expressing mood and emotion. All my shots touch me in one way or another, and I hope my work will be able to evoke those feelings in the viewer. Sometimes black & white photography is the best medium for this; sometimes it is straight color photography. But sometimes, I use digital artistry to express what I saw and felt when I shot the original image. This method is my passion.In this case, I see the picture as a painting. Using a tablet and stylus, and Adobe Photoshop and/or Corel Painter, I use color and texture and tone to bring out the hidden aspects of the image. I may also make substantial changes to the original shot in order to achieve what I feel is its underlying mood. I want the final result to express my vision, and to draw the viewer into that vision. Some examples of this kind of work include montages, (which I am currently experimenting with), and images that look like watercolor paintings, oil paintings, or ink sketches. My medium is light, transformed with a stylus and computer, into the kinds of results traditional painters attain with a paintbrush and physical paints. I am often asked what is meant by a digital watercolor or digital oil painting. It is simply this - a picture drawn with light using a stylus for a brush. My canvas is the computer screen. In my work, one or more photographs are always my starting point. The final result is printed on acid-free fine art paper using archival inks so that the framed image will last for 80-100 years without fading, if placed with care out of direct sunlight. In this way, I hope to give the viewer a lasting, beautiful visual experience.
