The Pink House

I am pleased to announce that a selection of my photographs of Homewood's iconic Pink House, the Bridges Studios, are now available for sale. I have chosen a variety of images that are available in two sized prints plus a selection of folded notecards. Other size options are available.

My gratitude to Abbie Wiersma at Art Editions and Gallery for her excellent printing and framing. Located in the Homewood Antiques, it's just a few blocks from the home. The perfect place for them to be shown.

Pink House I

 The Bridges Studios, the historic home in Edgewood has new owners and been thankfully spared from the wrecking ball. Over the past two weeks, I've had the privilege of getting to know the owners and capturing all the wonderful sculpture in and around the home. It's lovingly referred to as The Pink House, for obvious reasons. I hope you'll enjoy touring the home and gardens!

Coming Soon!

Third Friday at Shoppe

 I"m very lucky to have one of the hippest garden shops located just a block from my home.  Jay Draper and Mark Thompson manage to find the most beautiful plants and irresistible containers and gifts as well. On the Third Friday of every month. They throw an afternoon workshop along with wine and appetizers. Today we all left with adorable little vases with locally grown flowers from area flower farmers.

Future Photographers!

Today I had some big fun. I worked with 8 fifth graders from our IPC Summer Learning Program at our Children's Fresh Air Farm. These kiddos were part of our STAIR reading program as second graders and are invited to attend the program every summer through their fifth grade year. It's six weeks of reading and math with wonderful teachers, in the mornings, nourishing breakfasts, lunches and snacks, and swimming and exciting enrichment activities in the afternoons. This year, the fifth graders were encouraged to choose some extra activities of interest,  and I was asked to do photography with this group. After a short discussion about taking better photos, each one took my camera and photographed their classmates. They took some terrific photographs. I"m so proud of them!
