Haleh Mahbod, Saratoga Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement My work is influenced by Thomas Kinkade’s use of light and colors and is focused on creating positive energy and serenity in the space that it is hosted in.
Through story-telling photography I share special moments and experiences. My digital paintings are painted with natural light and colors from my photographs. I use my photographs as my color pallet.
