Floral Harmony

Digital print
Edition of 25 from the Portfolio Dayton Visual Art Center (DVAC) CSA 2018

Highlighting perfectly arranged flowers with digitally painted backdrops is harder than it looks–and Peggy is a master. She started with her digital camera where she captured such bold and romantic flowers like lilies, irises, and proteas (also known as sugar bushes). Next, with a digital tablet and pen (her “palette” and paintbrush”), she added her vision of each flower’s meaning and significance through a variety of techniques to create color, depth, and texture

“I photographed a parrot tulip with a macro lens on my digital camera. This allowed me to be very close to the flower and capture the detail without distortion. As I processed the image on my computer the curves and colors of the flower led me as I experimented with different angles and repeating designs. Several additional photographs of textures were blended in, creating a softening overlay and the background. The image is printed with archival ink on 100% cotton fine art paper and finished with a hand torn deckle edge.”

Peggy received her BA and MFA in Photography at the University of Toledo and is a Member of the Professional Photographers of America, the American Society of Photographers, and the Professional Photographers of Southwest Ohio, among others. For DVAC’s 2018 CSA she created a new floral photographic portrait that represents the glory of the garden season at summer’s peak, the harvest time.
