Night Vision Dahlia

Night Vision Dahlia

Cast Glass Dahlia on oil painted Canvas covered wood board

48 by 36 inches

I enjoy photographing my garden at night using my camera’s night vision setting. It is fascinating combining technology and art, changing the way we see the world and each other. Technology allows me to see things we are all missing in the dark. I translate my photographic images into cast glass combined with oil painting.

Why Dahlias? I have been growing them since childhood. Painting them in watercolor, photographing them and casting them in glass. I am drawn to their complexity, elegance and drama. The Dahlia became my signature flower and has been a part of my narratives during my career.
