The Art of Ice has become a most interesting series and project for me since it's inception in 2008. I officially released it in March 2010, winning awards locally and internationally.
Images of natural ice formations on the surface of small water bodies and bogs. These areas harness the best balance of moisture and cold air for my compositions. The key component is water retention. A few inches is an ideal depth. Mixed with an abrupt freeze it creates a perfect situation. Sticks, stones and leaves aid in altering the pattern of the ice during the freeze and become the catalyst for some of the most engaging results.
