In Vino Veritas

I am sensitive to waves of energy and sunlight as a daylight photographer ~ and take additional pleasure in working for events that possess both! 

The 2018 Chicago WineFest this year was held at Cafe Brauer, which has a spectacular skylight and glass panels that let in beautiful, diffused light. 

Being given free reign to photograph what attracted me allowed me to sync and flow with the enthusiasm of wine lovers, couples dancing, and wine-based cheeriness on a rainy day - AND images that had potential quality as artwork for my personal portfolio.  Let me tell you, for that experience,  I was as happy and elated as those who had a festival's worth of wine in them!  

"Amazing having your energy onsite and shooting for us."

"The photos are absolutely beautiful."

"Overall great pictures."

"I don't know if I just have a few favorites, as I like them all."

"They look fantastic!" 

"Best photos I've seen from the event."

"You really did a great job highlighting our vendors and guests."

"Thanks again for these great images."

"This is awesome work!"

"We will definitely be sharing on our page!"


Enjoy the feel of the day here on my gallery page or the Chicago Winefest Page on Facebook! (and thanks for 'liking' the page when you do!)

Sane Spaces

One of the young student guests at my recent art show closing reception said, 

"I'm going to miss this show."  

She used to come to the UIC African American Art Gallery to do her work through the school year and finals,

along with other students practicing yoga, making art, and, on Finals week, even eating breakfast there!  

It occurred to me that I had made an art show that successfully created a zone of energy.

For four months, eleven photographs in the AACC gallery wrapped the space in energy, serving as an artistic "power station" for the campus -

and creating a room that felt really, really nice to rest in.  

This show working with vibration worked beyond my expectations, and offered me an experience rich with potential.
