Kathy McCracken Alderman - Photography ~ Painting ~ Antique Silver Wind Chimes ~ Fun ~
I have always appreciated art. But because I put my creative energy into my family, I am a late bloomer. Once my birdies fledged I had a bit more time to explore. Sketching has always been fun for me. Finally I got the nerve to take an art class in the fall of 2005 and loved every minute of it!
Taking wonderful photos of my children and family gave me lots of practice using my camera. The rolling hills and natural creeks of rural Caswell County provide beautiful vignettes for my lens. Whether here at home, along the coast or by the banks of the White Oak River, "Mother Nature " never fails to inspire me. Initially I took photos to use as reference material for my paintings. Now I find that people want to buy my photos before I even get the chance to paint them. What fun!
