What are my 2018 Personal Projects and the  Beauty Project?​​

These are my own personal artistic growth projects, combining my photography & artistic interpretation with several different segments in 2018. I am also participating in a wonderful 2018 Challenge Project with Jacob Loafman's Institute of Imagination and it is truly special and wonderful for my personal creativity and growth as an artist!!

The Mission:   Work on myself personally as an Artist, Photographer and human being! I have several very personal projects I am working on in 2018 and they are all outlined to the left with detailed galleries and commentary for each, just click on the Chapters to visit each page, project description and photo galleries.

I went through a very traumatic and soul searching battle after a horrific car wreck.  I looked in the mirror and how I saw myself had changed...I no longer saw the beauty but the emotionally and physical scars.  

I knew there were other women, like myself, that had went through some emotional and physical battles in life and I wanted to show them, through my camera lens, how truly amazingly beautiful they are....despite what journies they have been on.

I will be working on this project for the next 12 months, through 2018, and welcome any and all emails regarding the project. If you would like to be a model for a gallery for your own personal reason(s)...please email me at beauty_project@littleblackbirdgallery.com
​I look forward to this journey and this very special project!!

Beauty....what truly defines it? Strength, Independence...

Styled after classic oil paintings from painting realism artists & painters, that inspire me personally.  Images will be digital art replicating a classic oil painting "feel" or classic oil painting look, generated through modern day tools and technology. These will be Fine Art photo sessions inspired by the oil paintings of: Serge Marshennikov, Rob Hefferan, Qiang Zhou, Pino Danei and many more that inspire my photography - However, I am also inpsired by painterly style portrait photographers like Phillipe Halsman and many more.
