Antique Woodworking Tools

Studio 1 class opened my eyes to lighting in a refreshing and new way. I’ve posted my class assignment finals and my final project “Antique Woodworking Tools” to my website. The tools gave me a lot of latitude with creativity, and I enjoyed the hours I spent with them. They take on a whole new look with the Contour Shape lighting, very dramatic!

You can see the entire series, as well as class assignments on the main website.

Our Kitchen Remodel

We did a complete kitchen remodel 2015-2016 that was 35 years in the making! Demolished down to the studs and floorboards, and rebuilt to a new floor plan. We got all new appliances, an Italian porcelain floor, cherry custom cabinets in the kitchen area, oak cabinets in the dining area, totally rebuilt fireplace, moving windows, adding a mudroom, and creating a kitchen that s a delight to clean, cook in, entertain, and enjoy!

Throughout the process, I took images of the four corners of the room. These are the four corners as they progressed from cluttered to finished. Rymar Kitchens in Warrenville did an exceptional job throughout the entire time.

As a photographer, I found a never ending supply of interesting abstracts, texture, macros, and points of view that generated a body of work I call “Construction As Art” which you will see in the near future.

The images are before-cluttered, before-clean, demolition, framing, drywall, and the finished kitchen!

With over 1,000 images of the process it is taking time to organize, edit and prepare. There is more to come!
