Clematis #2

The “clickless” work I present here is created from a hand held wand scanner. I used to think there was a “decisive moment” when my photographer’s eye and brain signaled my hand to press the shutter and capture a person’s character. I believe scanner-as-camera allows me to have a new perspective on portraiture and gives my work overtones of mystery and intimacy. My foliage series is scanned also with a wand scanner. All my images are fused with encaustic, giving the portrait or landscape a more haunting and ephemeral quality.
