THE "BIRD IN PARADISE"
My approach to photography is like my approach to life . . . I live in gratitude and my photography is an expression of that gratitude. On the ground, in the air or under the sea, I am in search of light, love & beauty. I don't use a drone or flash as I prefer to be physically behind the camera with natural light. I love sharing what I see and how I see it. I love finding the beauty in all things and seeing the Creator through His creations.
I have always been attracted to the arts. Early in childhood I was active in dance and the visual arts. Always making some sort of art piece to hang in my room or share with others. I enjoyed performing dance numbers in many shows put on by the Parks & Recreation Department in So Cal where I grew up. The 70's also proved to be artsy as I got creative with hair then went on as a dancer/dance instructor (Modern, Ballet, Jazz and some Tap). In the 80's & 90's I dabbled in photography then went on to learn a wide variety of business aspects through various jobs & entrepreneurial pursuits. Teaching myself the technical aspects of computer software programs from such makers as Adobe and Corel, I became the art trainer at a large business forms company which allowed me to transition to my own company of design and printing. My eye for beauty & art seems to come naturally and is still serving me well as a fine art photographer, designer & artist. Believing that nature provides the best light, I use only natural light for my photography.
My work has been see around the world - TV, books, magazines, ad campaigns, etc. I love traveling and collecting light wherever I go. Most of my time though, is spent at my island home on the Big Island of Hawaii where I am constantly surrounded and inspired with tropical beauty. My work of the Big Island of Hawaii is on display at the Blue Sea Artisans Gallery in the Keauhou Shopping Center in Kona, Hawaii. Stop by for a personal tour of her artwork. Denise is in the gallery most Thursday afternoons 1-5pm. Gallery phone (808) 329-8000.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
Most of my inspiration comes from, but is not limited to, nature. Even when I'm least expecting it, I'll be drawn to something out the corner of my eye, and when I fully look, it takes my breath away and I have to capture it to share. I love movement, texture, color, and the way they play with the light. I'm attracted to landscapes that draw me in, thus drawing the viewer into the captured image.
My intent is to capture what brings me joy, wonder and peace, and to share that with anyone who might want or enjoy those same things. My hope is that through my images, people will be able to experience the same things I did when I witnessed the scene in person. I like beckoning you into a beautiful landscape or inviting you to look at something from a different perspective or in a new light.
Since my motivation is to share my encounter with you, I want to physically experience the image myself. All of my aerials are taken with me behind the camera, whether it be in a plane, hang glider or helicopter. No drones for me! My underwater images are taken while snorkeling along the shorelines of tropical waters. No more wet suits for me!
