Photozaic Artist

I believe it’s the little experiences we encounter daily that complete the big picture of life.  You will see that I do this in my Photozaics.  When looking at my art don’t see as broken pieces but look at the complete picture and it will captivate you as Mother Nature does for me.

I start with a photograph; this will include a planned or a spur of the moment trip.  I go out with an open mind allowing Mother Nature to show me what she wants captured.  I decide which image will be made in a photozaic.

I color match the stained glass to my image; hand-cut and tumble.  Hand cutting the glass is time-consuming in a rhythmic way allowing me to zone out and only focus on my art.

I create photozaics; (I start with my photograph and complete in mosaic).  My art engages your curiosity wanting to know what lies beyond the frame.  Each work of art is unique and has its personality.

Aspen Fields

Wanting to get back with nature but didn’t want to drive too far or deal with crowded State Parks I remembered a wildlife management area just north of Saint Paul.  Twenty years ago, while working in corporate America I was able to walk these grounds at my lunch.  I knew that I could photograph this area using my infrared camera.  While heading down to the small lake, I noticed this clump of trees with the tall prairie grass in the foreground.  I wanted to capture the black knots on the trees and the wispy grasses.

Boardwalk hort.

Wanting to get back with nature but didn’t want to drive too far or deal with crowded State Parks I remembered a wildlife management area just north of Saint Paul.  Twenty years ago, while working in corporate America I was able to walk these grounds at my lunch.  I knew that I could photograph this area using my infrared camera.

Walking across the boardwalk I turned around to view this scene.  Love the repetition of lines and the 3D effect the clouds have.

Boardwalk to Peace

Wanting to get back with nature but didn’t want to drive to far or deal with crowded State Parks I remembered a wildlife management area just north of Saint Paul.  Twenty years ago, while working in corporate America I was able to walk these grounds at my lunch.  I knew that I could photograph this area using my infrared camera.

Wondering the prairies, the path goes into a patch of woods and come out the other side to the entrance of a boardwalk that takes you across a beautiful lake speckled with lily pads.

Bridge To Wonder

I was going for a dreamy wonderland look when I took this photo.  The Willow tree on the right and the path wondering out of the scene are what drew me to capture this image.  The contrast of black against white really works in this image.  Located at of my favorite local parks- Lake Phalen in Saint Paul.

Colorado Bound

My destination for the Summer of 2019 was a trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico for an art show, and decided to extend my trip to include an extra week of driving the New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Colorado, South Dakota landscapes.  During this trip I documented both in Color and Digital Infrared photography.

As I was heading out New Mexico to explore Colorado this single lane highway was recently repaved by the local DOT.  I loved the jet black popping off against the mountain range in the background and the bright blue sky holding the white puffy clouds.  The infrared has this 3d effect that draws you in and explore the scene.

I was selling at an art show located in Duluth and they had a few old sailing ships going around in the back-port area.  I snapped off this shot fully knowing that I wanted to make it into a frame.  I love how the lift bridge frames the ship.

Crissy Beach

Crissy Beach

I headed to San Francisco for an art show and decided to give myself a few extras days to explore this great City by the Bay.  I packed both cameras, color, and infrared.  I loved walking the shores as the fog filled the bay and covered up Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and other landmarks.  As the fog lifted I snapped photos of the various areas in the Marina District.  I chose to use infrared as this type of photography shows the textures and brings out the moodiness of a scene.  I use this technique on heavy overcast days, or with storms rolling in.

While walking the beach I took this photograph because of the high contrast of white against the black, sky, and water.  I also wanted to give that feel to draw you into the photo and did this by centering the boardwalk.  Love how you just see a hint of Alcatraz

Fallen Birch – Small

DEM 16x14x1

This photograph was taken on my parent’s lake.  The morning was cloudy but warm, we decided to take the pontoon out for a nice ride.  I noticed this Birch and asked my dad to get a little closer.  I was drawn in by the white birch bouncing off the lime and dark green backdrop.  I didn’t see the turtles until I blow up the image and was pleasantly surprised.

Forest of Birch – Small

DEM 16x14x1

 

My first visit to Jay Cook state park, hiking with some new friends.  We came across this view on our hike and I was just taken in by all the color, lines, and textures.  This is a winter scene taken in February just a few months before that area received 10+ inches of rain in less than 24 hours.  The state park had a lot of its trails washed away by the raging river.  I have not been back to see if my precious Birch is still there.

Gods Entrance

God’s Entrance- Xl Large photozaic

Ok, where do I begin!  This is just past the entrance to “Garden of the God’s” park in Colorado Springs, CO.  I got there early around 8:30 am Monday morning before the clouds could develop of Pike’s Peak in the background.  I think I had to pick up my jaw a few times as I was in awe of Nature’s glory.  I spent at least four to five hours driving and walking around the park.

Gorge Falls – Small

DEM 16x14x1

I planned a trip to Black River Byway with a friend in 2008.  This is a photo from that trip.  We drove up on a Thursday night during a heavy down pouring rainstorm, we missed our turn and had to backtrack.  Finally, we make it to the hotel around midnight.  The next day we find out they were in a drought and most of the rivers were low or dry.  So, I’m thankful for the storm we had to drive through otherwise I wouldn’t have this shot.  This shot I wanted the water to blur and show movement.

Green – Medium

I stopped to take pictures of Pelicans feeding at a local lake on a nice warm day.  When I approached the shoreline, I noticed this shot and it just spoke to me.  So, I snapped off this photo and decided to name it what it is.  Green water, green lily pads, green cattails.  This is a simple photograph but I find it calming to view.

Harriet Island Eagle – Small

DEM 16x14x1

Well, this was taken on a nice spring morning while I was walking the Mississippi river.  I felt like I was being watched and when I looked over I saw this gorgeous Bald Eagle.  I snapped a few pics off, but that lighting was off.  The Eagle jumped for its perch, took a fish from the river, and landed on the other side.  I decided to head over and see if I could get a better shot.  When I arrived on the other side, it had finished eating and was willing to pose for me again.  This is the shot I got.

Hazy Harvest – Small

DEM 14x16x1

The day was St. Paddy’s day in Cross Lake, MN.  I woke up to the view of heavy fog and grabbed my camera and keys, ran out the door in my PJs.  I was driving around my parent’s town and came across this old farm equipment with the filtered sun in the background.  I jumped out of my truck, with my gear and set up for a long exposure image, I used a filter on the sun part of the photo for the effect you see in the finished product.   The fog was so dense in areas I had a hard time seeing past the hood of my truck.  But well worth the adventure that morning.

Hill is alive w color – Medium

DEM 20x17x1

For years I would drive to the north shore of Lake Superior trying to get my fall colors only to arrive early or too late.  While taking a nice walk through a local city park, I came across this photo opportunity.  I wanted to hide the trail from the photo, so I trekked into the tall weeds stopping just before I hit water.  Moral of the story, check out your own backyard for beauty, you don’t need to travel far to see gorgeous landscapes.

Loon – Small

DEM 14x16x1

I took this shot with my dad on their lake in northern Minnesota.  We were trolling around on their lake in a 16ft aluminum craft boat.  I saw 3 loons and told said to my dad, “quick cast your line out”.  My dad did and the loons came right to the boat wondering what we knew that they didn’t….  I had my dad reposition the boat so the lighting was right as I wanted to capture the red-colored eye.  I had to zoom out to get this image as the loons were that close to us.

My Happy Place

 

 

This infrared photograph is taken on my parents’ home in northern Minnesota.  The lake is named Duck Lake; it’s a quiet lake with just around 2 dozen homes and feeds various birds Like Swans, Loons and Bald Eagles.  At any given time, you can sit out on the dock and watch a Bald Eagle catch a fish; land in a nearby tree for lunch.  I love this place for its peaceful tranquility and allows me to recharge my soul.

My first August trip to Rainy Lake and as soon as we dropped off my gear, we had to head out for a Lobster boil and steak dinner at another Islander.  I could tell that the sunset was going to be great, so I packed the required camera gear and set up the equipment just waiting for the sun to set.  I had my tripod up and I’m sitting motionless on a floating dock waiting for the perfect shot.  This shot is a vertical zoomed-in version of Rainy Lake Calm.

Pine Edged Road

Fall of 2017 I had an opportunity to go to Estes Park, Colorado; entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park.  This trip I decided to grab my digitally converted infrared camera and toy with it while in the mountains.  Upon arriving in Estes Park, I filled up my gas tank and headed straight into The Rockies.  Being a typical tourist, I pulled off at all the possible locations to take in the majestic views.  This included the storms racing down the mountainside.  I shot the scenes using both color and infrared while editing the images I fell in love with the infrared as it accentuated the drama of the storms and landscape.

This shot was taken in Rocky Mountain National Park somewhere on Trail Ridge Road.  The storms were racing down the mountains, I chose to use my infrared camera to capture the moodiness of the mother nature.

I researched a trip to head to the U.P. of Michigan for a scenic byway named “Black River byway”.  From the photos, I found online I knew I had to check this place out.  So, my girlfriend and I headed to the U.P. for a nice long weekend.  Our drive out there was filled with a nasty rain storm that we were stuck driving in until we arrived at our hotel.  I was bummed as I didn’t want to have cloudy, gray, and flat photos.  But we got up the next day, the rain stopped, the sun started to come out as we headed out on the byway.  This photo was taken at one of the stops, I remember climbing the stairs up from viewing a water fall, looked left and the red bark tree caught my eye.  I knew I had to take the picture.
