"My Digital Journey"
Digital Imagers Meeting
Sunday Oct. 3, 2010 at 1:15, Pitt Scaife Hall, Room 1102
My first digital photos were taken sailing around the world, on a Voyage of Discovery with Semester at Sea, with my husband (Academic Dean). 2007 saw trips to France and Ghana. Recently I have discovered my real interest in photography is seeing the beauty in ordinary objects - rhythms, patterns and shapes intrigue me. Later I experimented with creating digital images without a camera.
Early shows were at Studio Z, Undercroft Gallery and University of Pittsburgh Book Store. My first photography show was at The Te Cafe in Squirrel Hill, Spring 2007. In September I showed the France and Ghana photos at the Squirrel Hill Library. The next show was at Make Your Mark in Point Breeze. Then in July 2009 another show at Squirrel Hill Library. Gallery Chiz now offers my work and several private owners have purchased. The Ghana images were published in a volume by the organizers of the Conference on Slavery held in 2007. I had many group shows over the years.
I am a current member of the Pittsburgh Society of Artists, and former member of Associated Artists of Pgh. Also of the Fibre Arts Guild.
