Description High key selective colour photograph of an eye (my own, as it happens) with an unexpected little 'visitor'....All resources used my own. Images captured using Canon Powershot A480 point and shoot, hand held. Proudly New Zealand-made. :)
Tara Lemana, Wellington Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement My name is Tara, I’m a Dutch Kiwi, having spent my childhood in The Netherlands and the last 20-odd years in beautiful Aotearoa (New Zealand). I’m a wife and mother, a singer and songwriter as well as a visual artist. My favourite style of visual art to create (at the moment) is fantasy fine art composites. I pride myself on using only my own resources for the majority of my own work, except where I’ve used an image supplied by a friend to create a portrait of said friend, and on a rare occasion, a Photoshop brush (always properly credited of course). Recently I’ve also become fascinated with Macro photography, having bought a new Canon Powershot A480 camera in June which has a wonderful Super Macro mode, so you will find many macro photos in my portfolio as well.
I am entirely self-taught and have only been taking photos since Aug 2008, and first discovered the joys of Photoshop only towards the end of 2008 so I am a beginner in the truest sense of the word! :) That said, I have been drawing all my life and have always been the creative, artsy type so it is very much a part of me.
If you like my fine art composites and would like me to do a portrait or fantasy composite of you or a loved one in my particular style, please email me. :)
