Creatives Through the Lens ~ Artists of Oyster Bay            2022-2023


This body of work was inspired by a previous collection of work titled “Creatives Through the Lens.” The first leg of this work began with shooting artists and mentors I have had over the years. I documented a number of local artists who live in my hometown on the north shore of Long Island. With an emphasis on their hands, tools, and artistic process, these images give viewers a peek inside the studios and workspaces of these creatives and their creative process.
