The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. ... Albert Einstein

I'm a creative. I don't know how to be anything else. Everything I see, hear, smell is fuel for my muse. I've had several careers, but was never content until I found my niche.

Now, I run a home-based studio, FyreWork Designs where I freelance as a photographer, writer and designer. I wear many hats, but love what I do. I enjoy working in variety of artistic venues: digital alchemy, multi-media as well as mixed media. I often use my photography as a springboard to create fanciful images.

You'll find variety here, complete with comments as the muse sees fit. You've been warned ;-)

Oh, and in case you didn't know ... I'm a cancer survivor. Every day I wake up, I've survived!

Blossom Time

The warm days of early spring are a wonderful time for me. I love the freshness, the renewal of life and the promise that we are all part of an endless dance.

A Poem as Lovely as a Tree ...

I've always loved working with special effects in the darkroom. Photoshop is my new darkroom and I love experimenting. This is a variation on an infrared technique. I hope you like it.

Tranquil Passage

Japanese Gardens are meant to be peaceful; places where you can come to reflect. This fish was swimming lazily near the tiny falls that flowed into the pond filled with beautiful lotus flowers.

The Simple Pear

According to the ancient Chinese, the pear was a symbol of immortality, as pear trees live for a long time. In other mythologies, the pear was seen as a symbol of harvest.

In this picture, I've immortalized the pear and put it on display.

Mojo ...

He was with us only a year. The sweetest cat I'd ever come across. I'm not a cat person per se - allergies. And I'm used to large dogs. But he changed my mind. I'll be posting pictures of him from time to time. I'll start with this one that has been manipulated in Photoshop.

I love the feel of this picture. I never tire of the beauty of nature, and flowers are an outward expression of all that is pure and fragile.

Refuge From the Storm

This is a beautiful little heritage church, part of a pioneer village near here. It stands so still and stark holding untold secrets through the years.

Fire and Ice

I have always been fascinated by colour and light. Colours influence our moods. They inspire and motivate us. They add to form, while light gives them intensity.

Here are two examples of the same image. How does each one make you feel?

This piece was created during a time when I needed peace and tranquility. When the world gets chaotic, it's important to remember to withdraw even for just a little while.

Contemplation ...

Sometimes choosing the right path means stopping a moment to look back and see where we've been.

Worn and Tired

The sturdy wood is worn by years of toil. One wonders what lays beyond the door.

Fragile Beauty

Every so often we just need to stop, and breathe in peace and tranquility.

Colour and Light

And from the darkness comes the light. Makes one smile.

Time Won't Wait ...

How often do we put things off until we have more time, more money, more energy? Regrets creep in when you've let too much time go by. That is the greatest sorrow in life. Throw off the mantle of doubt ... and dance.
