Lydia Davis, Pikeville, NC Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement The art I am featuring here begins with a photograph. Along with practicing traditional art mediums, I am also a photographer specializing in Fairy Tale, Fictional and Fantasy images of children including Angels & Cherubs, Faeries, Gnomes & Sprites, Mermaids & Pirates, Princes & Princesses and Cowboys & Cowgirls. I work with Ballerinas, Lyrical and Modern Dance images, as well as Victorian images complete with period wardrobe. I also photograph children in many fictional settings, such as my Studio Beach, Grandma's Attic and my Barn Scene. Every spring, I offer my latest images of children with baby bunnies, ducklings, and our baby lamb. Each Christmas brings new images suitable for cards & calendars featuring children of all ages in my own custom designed holiday sets & scenes with and without Santa Claus.
I have extensive experience working with Photoshop and Painter programs, and accept work by assignment, so if there is something you have in mind but do not see it among my offerings, feel free to ask. Likewise, most images posted for sale here are available in a number of custom sizes, styles and finishes, although those options may not be offered on the item page.
I use only archival quality products in producing my custom images. My Original Signature Art Pieces are individually printed when ordered and inspected to meet my own strict standards, then hand signed.
Most of my images are available for limited commercial licensing. I retain all copyrights to my work.
