Description African elephant stands alone on a purple yoga mat in a studio in a perfectly balanced tree pose. Years of practice and dedication went into perfecting this skill. One day this elephant may also do downward facing dog and pigeon pose. Meditation was helpful to me because the digital work here was tricky as an elephant's leg can't really bend that far.
Stephanie Roeser, Bay area, California Member Since December 2010 Artist Statement I have been a quiet artist all my life. Realistic portrait and figure drawing and sculpture was what I enjoyed most. I created less than part time. I found other creative outlets but just here and there. I did some ceramics, built and fixed things around the house and made my daughter Halloween costumes.
In 2008 I was introduced to the art of photographic manipulation using Photoshop. This is my new outlet for my creativity. I never seem to get tired of it. Anyway, I enjoy creating these images and I hope that you will enjoy looking at them.
I especially like to put different animals in unusual situations. Many of my photos feature elephants but I also have many photos with dogs, cats, mice, lions and even dragons. I should have some tiger pictures coming soon. And, just for variety I will upload some non-animal photos too.
Keep checking back as the process of adding photos takes time.
