The photo-illustrations were created to express personal experiences
from my travels, children's stories, special events and celebrations, as well as commissioned work and advertising.
Each original piece begins
with my photography, where I have captured
the essence of the story
or experience I want to express. Then, as if working on a painting,
I artistically manipulate the images - adding dimension and depth, color and texture, as well as additional drawn or photographed images - which transform the work into whimsical and magical pieces of art to tantalize the imagination.
