Tammy & Matthew Barnes
Reisterstown, Maryland

Working with native and exotic woods has been a passion of mine since 1977. What began as a hobby turned into a full time job. I enjoy giving attention to detail and accuracy. All of my pieces are one of a kind. My work is sold in shops and galleries in 5 states.

 

I’m inspired by the outcome of my cards to create smiles. My Airedale Terrier Molly, and nature assists my creativity and brings me much joy.

As an artist, I’ve chosen photography as my vehicle in allowing the viewer a glimpse into how I interpret life, all the while hoping to show a different perspective than one might expect. Photography has been a near-lifelong passion for me. I started out with a cheap box film camera in the mid-1950’s, photographed Vietnam in the mid-1960’s, worked as a photo lab technician 1970-2005, picked up a digital camera and joined a camera club in 2006. Joining the camera club taught me the skills and discipline needed to be a good photographer.
Although I’ve worked with film, I now devote most of my energy creating digital images. These digital images are then fine-tuned using various software packages. Then the work is sent to a professional photo lab for prints.
I’m what is considered a “generalist” photographer. A generalist is one who photographs a variety of subjects. Although I’ve found my passion in photographing nature, abstracts, and travel, I’ve also been known to photograph street scenes, extreme close-ups, and portraits—in other words, just about anything. I’ve found that doing so helps to keep me motivated and provides me with a large subject list.
