Stock Photography Gallery
Stock photography consists of photos and images that advertisers, graphic designers and publishers use in websites, advertisements, brochures, etc. I'm working with 4 different online agencies right now and doing pretty well with my small but growing portfolio. It gives me an excuse to take pictures, which I love to do, and as a bonus I get paid for it.  Who could ask for more?

The images below are just a small sampling of some of my best selling stock images.  My apologies for the watermarks but without them it would be way too easy for someone to steal them.  If you would like to view more of my stock images there are links to all of my portfolios on my Links page.

Miscellaneous Photos
This gallery features a few of my favorite miscellaneous photos.

Photo Retouching Gallery
Here are a few examples of some photo retouching I've done in Adobe Photoshop CS2. I really had a lot of fun creating the Christmas card photo featuring my kitties in front of our fireplace. Every cat owner knows that cats simply will not cooperate when it comes to photos. I had to use pieces from 3 different photos to put that one together as you see it. Now if only I could Photoshop away my own flaws in real life... 

Instructions:  Hold your mouse pointer over the large image to switch between the original photo and the retouched photo.

Hockey Gallery
My husband and I are huge hockey fans. We have season tickets to the Gwinnett Gladiators, our local ECHL team. Every so often I load up my Canon 5D with my 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens and try to catch some good checks or the occasional goal. Sometimes I get lucky and catch a few like the ones below.

This is just a test.
Polymer Clay Sculpture Gallery
This gallery contains a sampling of some of my polymer clay sculptures. Polymer clay is versatile and easy to work with. Once molded it can be cooked in a regular or toaster oven to cure. The small purple box you see below is not painted but actually an Altoids tin that was covered in polymer clay millefiori cane. Once cured it was wet sanded and then buffed to a glossy shine.

Carving Gallery
I do most of my wood carving using a Foredom flex shaft but will occasionally use knives and gouges. I particularly enjoy carving lovepoons but the insides of golf balls are fun for a change. One of the most difficult yet most rewarding wood carvings I have done so far is the one you see in the very last thumbnail. The ball that is held within the wooden cage, and the chain links, were all carved from one solid piece of wood.

PMC (Precious Metal Clay) Gallery
PMC is a clay like material made of 99.9% pure silver held together with an organic binder. You can mold, sculpt or carve the PMC into jewelry or anything you like. When the piece is dry you can fire it with either a torch or in a kiln. The firing process burns away the organic binder leaving only .999 pure silver behind. After a bit of polishing you have a finished piece. I don't wear much jewelry but when I learned I could literally sculpt my own one-of-a-kind silver pieces I had to try it.

Gallery of Drawings
This gallery contains scans of some of the drawings I have done in the past. Many of them are older, either drawn in high school or college. Drawing was one of my favorite things to do as a child. I still love to draw and continue to rough out my graphic logo designs with paper and pencil before tweaking them on the computer.

Gallery of Paintings
Back in high school I became fascinated with Bob Ross and "The Joy of Painting" shows on PBS. I was inspired by his quick style and the way he painted his "happy little trees". Many of my paintings below were done in high school and bear his influence in a big way. A couple of years ago I decided to forgo the late Bob Ross style and painted a very detailed rendering of one of my favorite photographs - a butterfly. It took me over a week to finish it... Maybe there's something to be said for the loose and quick Bob Ross style.
