iPhone 5s Extreme Detail Photographs

Playing with a new lens (olloclip macro 10x and 15x) for my iPhone 5s. With this lens I am able to get wonderful detail shots of my wire work to blend back into images later.  Just a few shots here as I work my way through looking to see what this lens will do. Looking forward to creating different types of textures and layers to embellish images for printing on my alternative surfaces.

These photographs are prints on beverage cans and wire assemblages.

An Interesting Way to Use Crochet!

Awhile ago my husband and I were walking around a shopping center in Scottsdale Arizona. Someone had added crochet elements to the lights on one street of the Center. Check this out—of course with the hot season starting soon I can imagine what will happen to these:)

Love this, though, could be a wonderful outdoor installation with yarns that can withstand the weather better.

Happy New Year!!!

Here it is the first day of 2014 and already day two elsewhere in the world.
A New Year seems to be the time to take a look, make resolutions and just plain make yourself crazy for the rest of the year to accomplish what you think you should.

For this year my plans are pretty big and all of them involve creativity and moving forward with my art, creating online workshops, digital printing new and innovative alternative surfaces and writing about my process. Truly something good is about to happen as each day moves forward in this year or any year. 

Think about creativity and going for the joy of it. There is something about the creative process that is soothing, exhilarating, sometimes frustrating—but always the place to be. You are creative all over your life whether it involves art or not. Each and every day is a new adventure!!! Embrace it.

Be amazing in 2014 just because you are—
