The image that changed my life

She brings the fullness of Divine Goddess Mythology and the Divine Feminine strongly into her work.  I then required myself to look deeply into how to create images with not only good composition, but depth of meaning.

The image I wish I had created

I love to do composite art and always look for those artists who have a high degree of creative skill and imagination.  This image literally propelled me to the next level for my own creative process.

Artwork that has influenced my art

Teresa never stops reinventing herself and she never stops sharing her process with others. She has had a profound impact on my learning process as I developed my artistic goals over many years.

The image that is most underrated

Jean used this image to teach us the techniques of Black & White imagery during a mini intensive in one of the art groups.  I find the majority of art viewers and perhaps many artists, underrate the power of Black & White.  In the learning process I developed a new respect for this artistic method.

The image that changed my mind

This gorgeous image revealed the importance of the “eye”  in creating an effective portrait as well as changing how I used certain elements in my composites.  From her I learned less is sometimes better.

The most recent image that made me sad

This is an earlier image by Carol, but it has always stayed with me. She looks deeply into the psyche of feminine energy and explores the painful feelings of hopeless entrapment.

The most recent image that made me smile

Her playful unique creativity, especially with “ladies” always gives you pause and a smile.  There is a lightheartedness in many of her images that tells you she is truly enjoying a delightful process.

My comfort images

Whether flowers, cats or people, his photographs have a special clarity and glow. To me they are meditative in the perusing, instilling a sense of peace and balance.

The image I would most like to give as a gift

Janis has great camera skills and combines them with her skill in the mobile apps. This is a favorite of mine. I would absolutely frame it and give it as a gift.

    I have had the great fortune of corresponding with Diane for a number of years now. She is artistically creative, and intelligent, both intellectually and emotionally. I treaure my connection with her and am deeply honoured to be included in this list of “influences.” I am sure she could have chosen many more.
