Buy my art

When the moon begins to rise...

I am an artist (art has been a part of me all my life)...a photographer (a more recent newfound love)...combining the two to create my art. These are my works. I paint, draw write and sing as well...but, most of my time... lately, has been focused on my photography and creations.

My page is composed primarily of Nature and Self-Portrait work (though, I do experiment with other captures from time to time, which you will see)I am an avid fan of Natural light and I am always finding ways to use it towards my advantage in my captures...I do a lot of SP's for which, many of them are used in my work, my art...I am, my best subject. I work a lot with various emotions, creating different moods and even faces as you will see when visiting my stream. The SP is not only a personal journey, but also a road to self-discovery and expression.

Though, I have an MA in Humanities as well as two BA's in Business and in Applied Professional Studies...my heart always brings me back to the artistic part of life...creative endeavors...=) I hope to advance towards my Doctoral studies here in the future...working on my vision in the arts...

I use Nikon cameras to shoot my VISION...
A few vintage cameras waiting to be used...
And a whole load of Polaroid cameras calling out my name to fill them up with film...

What do I like? Here are a few things:
Roses, Nature, Frogs, Snowflakes, Snow, Things that glisten, Rocks, buttons, colors, stars and hearts, paper, ink, music, all things Victorian...vintage things large and small...and very old books...oh, and Charlie Brown trees to name a few. =)

Thank you for visiting my photo stream...I appreciate all of your kind thoughts...=) Lately, I have not had the opportunity to respond to all of the comments on my own stream...and I value each and everyone...I try to visit your streams as much as I can...to be inspired by all of you...=)

    "I always look foward to see what ~lala~(Lisa) comes up with next. She is one of the few contacts that I have here on flickr who has raw talent. It's simple to say that many people take pictures, but Lisa's work is more than a photograph. Her photographs are filled with tons of heart, emotion, and passion! Not many people can do what she does. Cheers!"

    "Lisa is a wonderful person and a very beautiful woman. She is not only creative but absolutely brilliant at it. Her creations amaze me. Her self portraits are a treat to look at – not only because she is gorgeous but also because of the treatment and settings that she comes up with. I have yet to come across another person who is as good as her in the use of textures.

    She is a wonderful human being and a great friend. She makes it a point to visit and comment on each and every photo of mine even if they are not good. I always look forward to her postings and each time she takes me by surprise – have yet to see her duplicate any of her ideas.

    Lisa – “L”ovely “I”nventive “S”exy “A”ngel

    I along with my family wish her all the best in everything that she does."
