About

Retired from the Aerospace industry in Southern California, I now have time to devote to my artwork and photography.  I love living in beautiful rural Franklin, in Northwest Pennsylvania, where I find inspiration in my surroundings.  My art can be found in Martha’s Vineyard at Kennedy Studios/Island Art, in downtown Franklin at “Hatched” and at Victorian City Art & Frame, and the first weekend of every October at Franklin’s three day event, “Applefest”.

    Kim,

    Beautiful work! Do you ever do hummingbirds?

    Merry Christmas!

      No, John, I haven’t done a hummingbird……yet! I am always looking for suggestions, and I like this one. I am currently doing a series of sunflower pictures for display at an oncology center and the flowers will be hung at different levels to simulate a garden. I had decided to place the occasional butterfly between pieces, and now I think I should add at least one hummingbird….. The artwork is due the second week in January, and I will post pictures of the completed installation when it is hung in February. Thanks so much for the suggestion!

    I love your work! I etch and paint on copper as well – mainly eastern themed such as buddha and hand ‘mudras’. For the life of me I just cannot seem to photograph my work well at all. Using a simply camera trying to capture the details is frustrating ( do not sell my stuff create for myself and friends) – what or how do you take such stunning photos? Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Karen,
      It is difficult to photograph the copper, for sure. When I need to submit photos for a professional look, I hire a professional. And he told me the issues he had with the reflection! Most of the photos on the website were done with my phone. I usually have to move the piece around to find a spot that isn’t too reflective and even then I am usually not satisfied. I try not to process the photos too much because you want to represent them as true as possible, sometimes even if that means waiting for a better day to photograph the piece.
      Thanks for visiting!
      Kim
