What led you to start creating your art/craft?
I've always been a nature nut. So, photographing nature in all it's glory just fits. I love being out there with the birds and the animals, in the fresh air, enjoying their world, their way and then bringing it to others.
How did you decide what medium you wanted to work with?
Honestly? I have zero ability to draw or paint or portray nature in any other way.
What aspect of creating your art/craft do you find the most enjoyable?
Being with nature, walking in the woods or old country roads. Seeing the world in a different way and portraying nature in all it's glory.
If you had to choose a fruit OR a vegetable, to describe your art/craft, what would you choose, and why?
An apple. Crunchy and juicy, delicious and oh, so good for you!
If you had to choose one other medium in which to display your “creativity”, what would that be, and why?
Gee, I don't know. If I could paint, I would love to do that.
What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?
There is such beauty just outside our doors if we would only take the time to look. Whether its a majestic blue bird sitting on a branch, or a piece of ice stuck between two twigs, the world is absolutely stunningly beautiful. Open your eyes and you'll see it every time you walk outside.
What advice do you have for other artists/crafters?
Don't give up. Get out there, let people know who you are and what you do. You're amazing, you just need to let other people know that too!
From one "nature nut" to another...Deon, I love your work! There is nothing more enchanting then getting in tune with nature! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and photography with everyone!
