Gordon Beck, Anthem, Arizona Member Since May 2008 Artist Statement Thanks for your visit.
I’m a self-taught photographer and artist with an interest in nearly all artistic expressions so I don't pursue any one style or genre.
My portfolio includes a mix of photos, digital artworks, and a number of more traditional acrylics and oils.
I also try to produce bright, cheerful images…I realize art can speak in many voices, but I’ll leave the darker commentary to others. I'm 60+ and feel the best years are still ahead. Faith and family are the most important things in my life, and I wake up every day feeling a sense of excitement about the creative possibilities ahead.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions. And thanks again for stopping by
