My main hobby since childhood is photography. I have done freelance photography in the US: weddings & portraits mainly. In Australia I have done pet portraits for friends, but now enjoy “Bush Photography” selling only to pay for my hobby.
I have never tried ‘photo shop’ or any experimental photography on the computer. All my photos are natural according to what I see through the view finder. I had a Canon EOS 400D digital SLR and a Canon EOS 1000D SLR. It has taken me this long to switch from 35mm to digital. 2015 update: I now have a Canon EOS 7D and love it.
My artwork is woodburning or pyrography. I use the scraps of timber from my husband’s handcarvings (Aussie animals) to wood-burn anything that suits the piece.
2016 update: I also enjoy working with Acrylic paint. Just learning at the moment. I have done a couple of abstract pieces for craft markets and now have a selection of art (pyrography and acrylic) in the upstairs Art Gallery of our local café in the valley.
I’m a retired Nurse, but seem busier than ever before.
