My art is original, mostly inspired by photographs I take with my point-and-shoot camera. The work can be painstaking, layer after transparent layers, like working with oil paint or watercolors. I frequently begin my workday by playing with photographs to loosen up. I make hundreds of these enhanced photos, most are discarded. But some are keepers. The Pixels section of my portfolio is a collection of this best work.
I take trips to the extraordinary Vallarta Jardín Botánico often. It is a favorite place to stimulate my creativity. I am not alone. USA Today named it one of its Readers’ Choice “10 Best” Gardens in North America. I visit seasonally for inspiration and to have lunch in the wonderful restaurant.
