I am creating a series of still life’s with found objects such as stones, shells, bark, bits of bone, colorful found surfaces, pans, spoons and other culinary finds. I am collecting and keeping these items to form strong visual combinations. Many of these items alone may not be considered art, but by placing items together in whimsical compositions, created visuals with some uniqueness. I find myself playing with colors and layering textures to come up with something visually appealing to my creative side. All this work is still in process. I find the act of composing to be the fun part and the photos carry some intrinsic interest appealing to me. I plan to continue to play with these objects and see where I end up. I want to create photos full of color and balance, and hints of these forgotten culinary objects.
