My composites are made up of several thousand individual digital photos.  Even though it takes me hundreds of hours to complete one, the process is always rewarding because, in the end, I have a picture that is unique in every way. 

How do I create my composites?  The first thing I do is remove the backgrounds in the photos that I'll use as elements or "building blocks" (hummingbirds, sea shells, butterflies, etc.).  Then I strategically place each of these elements, one at a time, onto a blank page in Adobe Photoshop.  I resize, rotate, distort, skew, and colorize the elements as necessary until I've placed the last photo onto the page.

I print the completed work on museum-quality fine art paper or heavy-weight artist's canvas using my Epson Stylus Pro 7600 and Ultra Chrome pigments.  

Just like my watercolor paintings, each of my composites is a signed original.  Those printed on fine art paper come matted, backed, and ready to frame. Those on canvas come stretched and ready to hang (framing is optional).
