Venetta Archer, White Rock, BC Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement I am a freelance photographer based in Vancouver. I have a passion for nature, abstracts, and finding beauty in everyday life. My devotion to the environment led to my fascination for capturing the abstract beauty of nature, and its many textures, patterns, layers and colours. My hope is to help focus people's attention on the dazzling array of mother nature's extraordinary creations. My deep connection to the ocean and interest in the world's most common, overlooked and often disregarded objects, have resulted in developing my niche of photographing the ocean's endless bounty. I also love to photograph the dynamics of people's interactions with the world's surroundings, including its ancient relics and nature's attempts to reclaim them. Thus, cultural and environmental themes also fascinate me.
I do not feel I create art from these themes, but simply have the privilege of capturing the natural beauty already present in all its forms. My expression is therefore only limited by what captures my imagination, and my desire to see. My goal is to share a glimpse into the world around us and that it brings enlightenment, hope, positive change and encourages us to be the best we can be. My hope is that through creative means, I can do my small part to support the preservation of this planet's natural state, and to encourage the harmonious balance between people and their environment, for the sake of all future generations.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or special requests. As I am a firm believer in everyone doing their part to help humanity and our planet, 50% of all proceeds from my print sales are donated to CARE International (CARE) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
I hope what you see will touch you in a positive manner and inspire you.
