Winter Wonderland

There is a story behind this image (isn’t there always?) but I thought I might share this one. I had this fabulous idea of pointing a coloured torch at the crystal ball Jess was holding, Desley was shooting and the colour spectrum she was getting in her shots was amazing…I was so excited to try.…

The Ice Queen

The Ice Queen cometh. I mean what can I say, I actually did so very little to the image, it really was quite amazing, the white eyes were contacts worn by Jess, creepy, so I highlighted them I created a dark vignette and added snow…it seemed to ‘need’ snow. The twigs were there in the…

She walks among us

As the new day dawns, The Ice Queen, returns to walk among us, the stuff of legends It was fantastic to get back into the studio with Jess, but just as good to be inspired to create a few great pieces for the Winter Wonderland collection. These days I don’t create for the sake of…

She walks with wolves

She walks amongst wolves. The Ice Queen from the North. Wind and wolves howl as the snow flurries and the briefest of sunlight wanes, as she disappears into the night and legend. This is just one of the pieces of digital art I created from the Winter Wonderland shoot I did recently in the studio…

Butterfly Dreaming

The original image was captured in really bad photographic conditions and needed quite a bit of photoshop magic to turn it into this image, which I feel is soft and calm and serene…I titled it Butterfly Dreaming, I feel I have another piece called that as well so maybe this is Butterfly Dreaming #2!

Shakespeare…

I really cannot decide what to title this piece, something about it screamed Romeo and Juliet, but technically crowns were not really involved, my Mother suggested King Lear, but I am not a fan, perhaps Ophelia? Shakespeare is on the spine, so something to do with one of his tales, maybe even a Mid Summer…

Monday’s musings…

Why is it Monday’s seem to come around so quickly? Friday was spent putting the finishing touches on an online class, shooting, video, edit, repeat and then a bit of chilax, it had been a bit of an emotional week…nothing I really want to get into, but sometimes you just need some me time! Somethings…
