Video Art Samples
This category includes a variety of pieces that I shot and edited myself — using a professional camera and professional editing software. These videos promote the work of local artists as well as one short pieces of my craft work.
Included in my art clips, are short “tone poems” about the natural surrounds in my woodland property and when I travel. Contact me to discuss how I can create simple stories like these for you and your artistic adventures, your family activities or your favorite environs.
