I have been a creator all my life in a multitude of mediums including oil, fiber, and photography. My most recent venture in the art world is based on a photo series of my extensive collection of over 100 antique toy skiers from the dawn of skiing (1930’s and 40’s) taken in real snow high in the mountains at ski resorts across the country. All images are taken onsite and not photoshopped to appear on location. This work showcases the beauty of mountain landscapes with a wink of whimsy designed to draw the viewer in and surprise and delight. I love working with the intersection of time and nature. As this past ski season and access to the mountains came to a screeching halt as Covid-19 took hold last spring, I used my images in new and different ways as I imagined our new world protected by plexiglass.
