Judy Maruszan, Rocky River, Ohio Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement I began using a digital camera in 2005 and got seriously creative in 2006. That's when I started getting into craft shows and galleries to see if others like my work, and lo and behold, many did - and still do. And that means the most to me.
I like to capture an unusual view, as most photographers do, but I also like to see what else an image may have to offer. Check out the "Enhanced" Gallery to see examples.
I love nature and am fortunate to live a few blocks from the Rocky River Reservation of the Cleveland Metropark System. Many photos you see here are from that park. The system is called the "Emerald Necklace" for the way it circles the greater Cleveland area. It truly is a gem and one of the many good things about Cleveland.
I currently have my work for sale at: BAYarts Gallery Shop, Bay Village
