A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being photographed by Bernadette Dye in my studio for her environmental portraiture project for her MFA thesis. I enjoyed the experience and the images that were the result are terrific! Mozzie, my dog, even got in on the act. Bernadette will be posting other artists and their spaces on her blog. Check her out! Below are some of my favorites from the shoot.
Heidi Kelly is the artist and crafter behind HUGs, Heidi’s Unique Gifts. She doesn’t limit herself to just one medium, but likes to explore any that may strike her fancy. Heidi started in photography during college where she took a basic photography class. After a few years she decided to expand her photography knowledge and went to Antonelli Institute. Since Antonelli she has continued to learn new mediums and has taken numerous classes to further her knowledge in arts and crafts.
Right now one of her favorite mediums is collage. She creates collages using photographs, magazines and tin cans. She also enjoys sewing and has recently been creating unique handbags. Heidi’s passion is fueled by the happiness and satisfaction she experiences when she creates something from nothing.
When she is not creating she enjoys spending time with her husband, furry friends, and a good book.
