Fortunate Finnegan – This tiny tree frog visited me while I was weeding my flowers. In Scotland, the frog is seen as an item of luck and is often given as house warming present. As a Celtic symbol meaning, the Frog was deemed lord over all the earth and the Celts believed it represented curative or healing powers because of its connection with water and cleansing rains. In China, the Frog is an emblem of Yin energy and thought of as good luck. Frogs are also good luck symbols in Japan - especially for travelers. Images or charms were worn during long voyages to assure safety (particularly across water).
I welcome and encourage you to special order any of my designs in any of my products listed! I have over 100 designs. View all of my design in my online gallery:
My designs start with one of my photographs. I am compelled to immortalize and transform Mother Nature’s awesome creations into images of mesmerizing symmetry through kaleidoscope photo art.
I take photos that have varying texture, shapes and colors, digitally crop different angles and reassemble the crops together to create a seamless kaleidoscope photo. One photo can create numerous kaleidoscopes because each cut creates a different geometrical pattern. The finished product can create a pattern that is difficult to recognize the original photo or can enhance the subject of the original photo. This is all done freehand! This is not a result of an automatic program. Automatic programs will distort the subject. My process is unique as it allows me to isolate my subject and kaleidoscope everything else around it. Why you ask? Why turn my photography into kaleidoscope designs? Good question....the only explanation I have is this is what I see...it is simply my twisted imagination!
Oh yes one other thing.....if you run across a math teacher from Michigan...please oh please don’t tell him or her what I am doing. He or she might be one of my former teachers. If they knew what I was doing I would not live it down...you see...I HATE MATH! I pouted, cried and whined all through school about math...and what I do is basic geometry. I would never hear the end of “I told you so” or “See I knew if you set your mind to it you would learn math”. Let’s keep this my little secret!
