Last night at the local camera club I was given the award pictured above. I am so very pleased to receive the honour. I come across as a pretty confident person but I was shaking in my boots when my photo was being judged. I believe I will enter more photos in our next competition. The way the ribbon is present it quite nice. They have all the pertinent information to the right and a thumbnail of the photo. I am inspired and encouraged!
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
