Bio: Born in Miami, Florida, I now live in New Smyrna Beach, Fl and Provincetown, Ma. Although jazz guitar was my first love, I began creating etchings and oil pastels, and grew to love this expression of arts. I exhibited in galleries and outdoor art shows, garnering some awards along the way. Now, I'm focusing on surrealistic, abstract and artful photographic images shot on site.
In experimenting with film based photography, I have created multi-imaged photos. These images are created by random film advances and double exposures. Some appear abstract, while others are combinations of several fanciful subjects. All are printed on archival canvas or photographic paper. The photos are signed, limited editions.
When shooting photos digitally, I create images by looking for reflections, colors, shapes, shadows and double exposures on site. All images are printed with archival materials and are signed, limited editions.
"The subject matter has changed over the years. At this point in my life I choose to follow my inspiration in any given day. I hope you enjoy my gallery of images." Melyssa
