Pamela Jorgensen, The 'Burbs', New York Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement Welcome to my gallery. I grew up in a small village in rural England where there was inspiration all around for a child that loved to sketch and paint. I even made a little money painting pictures of my village on small rocks, which the local gift shop kindly offered for sale. These days I enjoy photography and I particularly love to photograph flowers. I try to capture the beauty of a flowers form or that moment when the sunlight illuminates a single bloom. Thanks to the gardening talents of my husband I am inspired every time I step outside my door. We have a small, yet prolific garden. He grows the ordinary and the exotic always looking to try something new. For me it is an artists dream and if my children can’t find me they look in the garden, for that matter, if they can’t find their father he’s usually there too! Occasionally I do a little creative editing on some images, it entertains the artist in me to create an interesting twist on the original. It also lends itself to my work on greeting card designs. I have designed cards for my own use for quite some time and lately have been preparing to venture into selling my own designs online. Truthfully, I have far too much fun with this to call it work. I do hope you enjoy this introduction my photographic ‘work’, there will be more to follow. And if you should consider inviting an image into your home please be assured that no flowers were harmed in the taking of these photographs!
