Welcome!

 

Summer 2020 - I love print!  Books, magazines, photographs....  there's something seductive about holding fine paper or beautifully printed publications in my hands (ok, weird, I know).  I still prefer to look at artwork in its physical form, rather than digitally, and I subscribe to several magazines that I keep forever.  The stacks are piling up, yet I can't bring myself to get rid of any...  in fact, I've just added two more subscriptions to my list.  Both are based in Europe - Art North Magazine, out of Scotland, is relatively new on the scene, yet promises to become an important addition to the art world, while the second magazine, Katalog, from Denmark, features photography only and has been around for 30 years or so.  They give me a bit of a glimpse of what other artists are doing, and I look forward to each issue.

Summer 2020 - Am I the only one who enjoys learning new words?  I collect them in a notebook, simply because I like the way they sound.  I am intrigued by words or phrases that describe landforms or processes such as wave action and wind movement.  In reading them, I experience a strong visual interpretation; they hover in the back of my mind as I create my photographs.  Favourite sources?  Writers such as Robert Macfarlane,  Lucy Lippard, Simon Schama and Rebecca Solnit.  I pick and choose their words for my collection, imaging places I could go as I read their works, and the landscapes I'll photograph.

Summer 2020 -   I spent a few days in a cottage by Georgian Bay, inspired by the peace and calm of the  wilderness.  So restorative, and good for the soul... a chance to recharge and take a break from the world.  No agenda, beautiful low light and a willing niece (and her dog) as my model.
