Gallery Show

After taking a break to focus on family (had a baby) I’m excited to announce I am working on a gallery show of personal work that will open on Friday, August 15th at Abbey Creek Tasting Room at 31441 NW Commercial St, North Plains, OR 97133 from 6-10pm.  Photography will always be a part of me, it’s my passion and gift. There are times as an artist you need to step away and take a break. I needed that after shooting events and portraits for over ten years. Being pregnant was the perfect break and then having a sweet, beautiful baby girl! She is amazing and it’s a true blessing to be a mom. With the much needed break I had some time to think about what I wanted to showcase at the monthly art walk at Abbey Creek.

I decided to go back to my roots, to photograph what I started out in. I call it found objects. Buildings, cars, furniture, farm equipment etc that is found out in nature. Items that have become weathered and worn over time. These things have been abandoned by their owners and left to mother nature. She breaks them down in different ways, paint chips, metal rusts, wood breaks and roofs fall in.

These are a few images from where I shot. An amazing yard filled with old cars. I was in photo heaven. Want to see more? Come join me for an evening of images, wine, chocolates and cheese!  Follow the facebook page of Abbey Creek for updates. (note: the images below will not be on display.)
