From the Artist:
My love of art began as a 10-year-old child – completing the “Draw Me” contests in the back of magazines. I studied various art forms as a child at the Cranbrook Academy of Art and through my school I dabbled in clay and enamels. I wanted to grow up to be an artist. As an adult I completed two courses in sculpture at the Center for Creative Arts in Pontiac Michigan, but it was through my work in policing that I discovered photography and began my journey from monochrome images and creative darkroom techniques to my avocation – digital imagery. The artist I wanted to be as a child has finally emerged in the creativity of the digital darkroom.
My subjects range from botanicals, particularly orchids and wildflowers, to landscapes and the views I’ve enjoyed while sailing the North Channel of Lake Huron. Water, whether by its movement, water falls, seascapes, or through its reflections, is a never-ending source of inspiration. Architecture and minutia often provide fascinating graphic abstracts. Animals, birds, and insects bare the qualities of camouflage, survival, and life. Still life provides a sense of tranquility, a time to reflect, and a time to relax. The seasons all provide their own special beauty. Whether captured in color, or monochrome, our world is best viewed through many perspectives. If there is a subject you’d like to explore, please contact me at BevWolf@BBWolfFineArtPhotography.com. If I have an appropriate image, I’ll be happy to share it with you.
I hope you enjoy this sampling of my images.
