My online gallery features pictures of the Portland skyline, the city's twelve bridges, local landmarks, scenic landscapes of Oregon, Mount Hood, Multnomah Falls and other waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge as well as the Oregon Coast with Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach. As a photographer member of the beautiful Portland Japanese Garden, I have many images of colorful Maples shown during the four seasons. Other themes include florals, trees, architecture, travel, various regions of Europe with a particular emphasis on Provence, France.
Viewers of Disney XD's hit show Crash and Bernstein and IFC Channel's Portlandia
might recognize my images that were used in those productions. My Sunrise was also widely seen, as the cover shot of the 2011 Portland Japanese Garden Calendar.
In recent years, I have developed my own technique of blending photography together in a more seamless manner than a collage. I refer to these creations as digital paintings, of which Oregon Landmarks and St. Johns Bridge have become popular locally.
My images are printed either on professional-grade matte-finish photo paper or on fine art canvas. My canvas giclees are either stretched as ready-to-hang gallery wraps or mounted on fine art panels, ready to be framed by my husband, Michael Manahan. All work is performed by us, which allows us to accept orders for custom sizes or commissioned pieces.
My prints are available every Saturday and Sunday at Portland Saturday Market, in Waterfront Park, from March 1st through Christmas Eve.
My image library is much more extensive than what Ive been able to include here; if you have a specific wall decor need for your home or office, or if you are a retailer who'd like to make a wholesale inquiry, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
