Terrie Hilt, Kansas City Member Since April 2011 Artist Statement I have always been fascinated with ART , I started out as a doodler on scrape paper and progressed to full size pencil drawings with meaning. I took all art classes available while going thru the education systems. I have enjoyed many different palates from pencil to watercolor & acrylic to oils. I have always been most fond of photography; running thru the rolls of 110 film when younger and moving up to the 35 mm., Oh how glorious. Then the digital camera was born. I work with both the 35mm and the digital cameras. For me individually each camera carries distinct attributes only it can provide.
Being able to capture those "Kodak" moments. Being able to feel the emotion captured from a single instant in time. I would have to say that my all time favorite is Black and White; a black and white shot can speak volumes. Not to say I don't enjoy color shots as well; I do!
As for my digital works; Well, that came to me about 5 yrs ago. Always curious, I had to figure out how to do these fantastical and ever so mesmerizing pieces. So I researched and studied all about it, I tried my hand, mind and patience at it and have been moving forward with great zeal.
