Melissa Widmaier, Laveen Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement This is my philosophy, and I believe this true for almost everything: The closer you are to something, the more beautiful it becomes.
I'm the kind of person who looks for the unusual and the profane. The world is my cathedral. I believe all things have a beauty and quality in their own right. Nature and landscapes call to me the most; although whimsy hits me at times and I go for completely different shots. Photography has become a passion and I find myself carrying my camera everywhere. My young son and loving husband are my guides and my pets are my loyal muses.
While you're browsing, please try out the canvas feature on some of my photographs. I guarantee you'll be as impressed as I am!
