The Golden Collection Artists Statement:
After years of searching for a new approach to my photographic art, I discovered a technique by a watercolorist which would give my work a shimmering quality. Once I learned the proper combination of paper, paint and ink, I created The Golden Collection using images of trees and flowers with a strong emphasis on light and shadow.

What I love about this collection is the warmth of the gold appearance along with a touch of iridescence. “The interpretation of fine art begins with you” is a statement that has been with me for over 30 years. It feels even more apropos today as I passionately create my new body of work to share with you.
