Tinker's Realm

Welcome to

I add new pics all of the time to the above website. My images range from Traditional to On the Edge and always have a touch of Whimsy!

I am still amazed how easily I can share my photography from the comfort of a Computer Chair & Enjoy seeing the A-Mazing Works of other Photographers too!

When I opened my eyes, I became Curious about the World I live in and how to record the impression of Life's impact on me through Photography & Art. My passion for both grew as I began to see more clearly. Photography/Art has demanded discipline, commitment, hours of isolation, and had I known how difficult it would be, would never have had the courage to begin. I would have missed learning to see the beauty of life as it unfolds. The creative process has permanently altered my life by allowing me to see each waking moment as a divine gift.

I am passionate about the creative process and respect others in their creative vision/methods. I wish for the same Grace to be extended to me as I make my Journey through this Creative life.

I have had the honor of studying via workshops under some amazing Master Painters: Sally Strand,Kitty Wallis,Terry Ludwig just to name a few!

One of my pieces: Date Night was awarded entry in to the: Mayors Art Show 2011.

Be Well & Thrive!

Original Poem by: Tinker's Realm

I Am

I am Drowning in a Sea of Beige

I wonder if I will pull a Houdini

I hear the chatter of the city streets

I see the trolley wheels flash a smile as they spark by-me

I want to fly with the folly of the Scrum Jay

I am drowning in a Sea of Beige

I pretend I’m an Urban Dweller

I feel the mold grow as I walk daily to the post

I touch the silence that buries numbered days

I worry that mundane has robbed me

I cry knowing life will not wait

I am-I am drowning in a Sea of Beige

I fear Beige is taking my allotment of days

I say beige is swallowing me like Jonah's Whale

I dream of the progressive jive

I try to reach the pulse but beige keeps a choke hold on

I long to be a Bohemian Dweller...

I am, I am Drowning in a Sea of Beige...
