Works of art imitate and provoke other works of art, the process is art itself. -Edward Hirsch
I was asked on my Facebook page what my influences are.. what inspires my photography?
Influences: First I’ll take a look back. When I was a young teenager my favorite magazine was Victoria.
Images of dreamy country scenes, women in hats & vintage picnics filled my imagination and I enjoyed reading about women
that stepped out and followed their bliss, turning their creative hobbies into a profitable business.
I hoped it would be me someday. :-)
I also read alot of historical fiction and watched movies like The Sound of Music & Anne of Green Gables
soo many times that I could recite much of the script & songs by heart.
I’m sure in some way I was shaped by these things.
When I analyze what I have created as an artist, I feel nostalgia for a simpler time that I missed being a part of.
Unfortunately, I’m not a time traveler.. so photography will have to be my means of trasportaation! :D
It’s a rewarding process to create something from your imagination.
It only takes a spark… an image, a scene from a movie, song lyrics, a distant memory.. then something new & exciting evolves from it.
I want to explore vintage style until I have understood and felt part of it.
My favorite inspiration right now… Mad Men cocktail dresses, Audrey Hepburn pearls, Taylor Swift style updos, Julie Blackmon photography
Favorite Style Periods… classic Hollywood, 50’s housewife, old school retro, and a mad new crush on the 60’s!
