DescriptionProbably the happiest Ferris wheel you've ever seen!! Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio is home to many thrilling rides, this is one of the classics. A giant ferris wheel. At 136 feet (41 m) tall, Giant Wheel is one of the tallest Ferris wheels in North America. It also puts on a spectacular light show every evening, and I was thrilled to see I had captured it's smiling face! Original photograph with only slight texture added, happy face courtesy of the giant Ferris wheels light show.
Shawna Rowe Member Since July 2012 Artist Statement I grew up in a creative family who loved photography, music, art and random hiking adventures. That helped me to develop a love for nature and artistic expression early on. I've never limited myself to one particular medium but I do favor graphic shapes, bold colors and whimsical style. Whatever the medium, I try to include some or all of those elements in my work.
My family has always been a big inspiration and they feature in a series of satirical cartoons that I've done just for fun over the years. Each year I make a new cartoon to celebrate each of my daughter's birthdays. I've also made my own greeting cards for family members over the years.
Lately, I've been making detailed magazine collages. Each one is made of 100% recycled paper cut into tiny shapes and carefully applied much like paint onto canvas. It's an art-form that requires a lot of time and patience but I love this unusual way of creating. Thank you for visiting my gallery!
