: I enjoy taking photographs of ordinary and not so ordinary elements of the natural and manufactured world around us. Upon occasion I'll scribble or mess around with watercolors, ink and mixed media. When I get access to photoshop, I like to explore the endless possibilities of digital manipulation - as opposed to series such as mundane world where images have little (such as cropping or minor color balance) or no modification. Fascinated by fantasy, nature, imagination, abstraction / non-objective composition.
Looking to use this area as a forum for online portfolio and interaction with artistic community.
Thank you for visiting, Sandy Tolman
