I was at the @VonLintelLA Gallery last night, enjoying the nature inspired work of British born artist Susan Derges. Her images are created without a camera, quite photogram-like, including the shadows that occur in nature, among the trees and water under moonlight. Fascinating and inspiring work…and reminiscent of a series I started in 1999 but with an urban New York twist.
The museums that are lucky enough feature her work are the Met in NYC, the San Francisco Museum and the Albert & Victoria museum in London. Go see their collections if you can. If you are in LA, go see her work at Von Lintel gallery while they’re on display.
Here’s one of the images of the NYC series I began in 1999. Dreamy yellow toned images of NYC shot with film and my Canon AE-1. Yes, I cheated a little…I used a camera 😉
This and others in my series are available for purchase -just click on the image above or peruse my website here.

I’m in a beachy state of mind today- probably because I grew up on one and I’ve most recently moved near one, here in Santa Monica, California. The ocean has always captivated me and been my place of peace. Here’s a collection of my favorite beaches and waterways, a little beach therapy for you.
All are for sale as prints or canvas, among many other mediums-even on tile if you feel you want to sneak a beach themed tile into your bathroom decor. Simply click on the image and voila…you can purchase. Enjoy.
