Artist’s Information

Pat D'Aversa-Self Portrait


Artist’s Satement:

I am a photographer of nature, especially on Long Island.  My favorite captures are flowers.  My photography has evolved from simple portraits of these sensual beings to abstract interpretations.  My goal is to capture the simplistic beauty of each flower while drawing the viewer in to experience the scent and almost feel the softness of the petals.

Wildlife and landscapes are another favorite and by preserving the moment with my camera we can enjoy the scene for years to come.
 My goal is to compel you to look at my art, process it then go back and look again.  The impact of color and composition hopefully will be pleasing to your eye.
