Going to the farmers's market helps me remember that I want to eat healthy, fresh, and local.
Hanging photos of gorgeous vegetables in my kitchen helps me help me affirm and celebrate the role I want vegetables to play in my life.
A few years ago I was 40 pounds heavier, pre-diabetic, and tired all the time. I set out to improve my diet. It was't easy – we're all bombarded by ads and opportunities to eat junk – but it worked! I now feel fantastic.
I hope my photographs will help you put vegetables forward in your life, too.
My “kitchen art” photography began at a farmer’s market in Austin, Texas, back in 2009 — with some particularly delicious late afternoon light. I began selling small, framed fine art pieces at local art shows that year. After moving to Ottawa in 2017, I discovered the farmers’ markets here. This past summer I set up a stall for a new line of laminated “kitchen art boards” at the Ottawa Farmers' Market at Lansdowne Park on Sundays and at Beechwood Market on Saturdays. Look for me at the weekend Christmas markets this coming December. Or, by appointment, you are most welcome to visit my home studio. I’ll be delighted to help you choose your art.
