DescriptionDeep blue and winter white landscape. Original shot taken here in Northern Ohio. I wanted this image to have an exaggerated color scheme but still retain the look of a classic winter scene. I've kept it monochromatic to allow all of the subtle shades of blue stand out even more against the stark white snow. The quiet stillness of the day, the crisp clean air and the gently falling snow made this a perfect day for a wintertime photography outing.
Shawna Rowe Member Since July 2012 Artist Statement I grew up in a creative family who loved photography, music, art and random hiking adventures. That helped me to develop a love for nature and artistic expression early on. I've never limited myself to one particular medium but I do favor graphic shapes, bold colors and whimsical style. Whatever the medium, I try to include some or all of those elements in my work.
My family has always been a big inspiration and they feature in a series of satirical cartoons that I've done just for fun over the years. Each year I make a new cartoon to celebrate each of my daughter's birthdays. I've also made my own greeting cards for family members over the years.
Lately, I've been making detailed magazine collages. Each one is made of 100% recycled paper cut into tiny shapes and carefully applied much like paint onto canvas. It's an art-form that requires a lot of time and patience but I love this unusual way of creating. Thank you for visiting my gallery!
