Connie’s Artistic Statement

"I am attracted by special situations such as an object or scene of extraordinary beauty, often accented by a special light source. Another subject which draws by attention is one which shows the result of something or someone changed by the passing of time, causing the viewer to reminisce about those changes. 

Catching a subject at just the right moment in time, which is fleeting and may never happen again, challenges me to portray the situation. People interacting positively, having fun together at all ages attract my attention, especially families, the core of civilizations.

Finally, what is the best way to present my feelings about these subjects so that the viewer will be drawn into the situation? My faith is a factor in finding these images. I pray for guidance and insight to create the best art possible."
