Description Photograph: a portion of a large wetland pond along the nature trail system in Orillia.This area is home to aquatic animals such as beaver and muskrat; it houses turtles and frogs and provides home to ducks, geese and a variety of bird species.The train runs through the center of town, hidden by treelines and adjacent to Lake Simcoe. It is considered to be an environmentally protected area where there are varieties of tree and wilflowers apart from the ever present wildlife. On occassion, just near this pond you may also run across wild turkeys.
“Born and raised in Toronto the artist has called Orillia home for more than 30 years. With her husband, two beautiful daughters and four perfect grandchildren she lives a life of quiet reflection. Unlike many professionals she has no degree in art or photography, simply a love for what she does. For her, success is in the joy of creating.”
Retired from the 9-5 grind of the workworld, I decided to start off on a new career a few years ago using my longtime love of photography. Photography has become a challenging world for me; one that has pushed me to continually improve.
Transforming a digital image into an artistic work has given me the creative outlet I was seeking.
When the artistic side takes over the results are the images I see in my inner visions: not always expected, but they are my own interpretations of the world around me. Sometimes fantasy, sometimes light, and every now and then, darkness. In all of their forms, these images come from my heart… Tempered by my faith and inspired by the world God created, these are His creations much more than they are mine.
