I’m putting my money where my mouth is…
The start of a brand spankin’ new series based on one of #SharingItForward’s core principles, artist collaboration! I am so excited to announce this new #SharingItFoward Artist Collaboration Campaign and Print Series. In the coming months, I will be releasing artworks, all of which, are collaborations with some of the top photographers in the field of conceptual portraiture. Demonstrating just how powerful collaborations can be in stretching our creativity and deepening our marketing reach. I say it all the time. Artists NEED each other. Wither you are a painter or a photographer… So I’m putting my money where my mouth is! 🙂 This series is a true representation of what #SharingItForward is all about: sharing knowledge and pooling resources.
As you get to know these artists, I hope this process will encourage all of you in this #SharingItForward community to collaborate and push aside fear of competition. Working together, we can attain much bigger goals. Think big and then shoot bigger…
How you can participate in the Artist Collaboration Campaign…
Help spread the #SharingItForward mentality! Everything I know and have learned has been shared with me by amazing artists and photographers willing to share their knowledge and expertise. I am, in turn, sharing it forward to other artists and photographers. It’s like “pay it forward” but there is no money involved. We don’t pay. We share.

This inaugural artwork is an artist collaboration with two amazing conceptual portrait artists, Gemma Wood and Nain Leon. This particular collaboration came about as a part of a team challenge in an artist group we are all a member of.
Gemma Wood is a photographer and artist living Saskatchewan, Canada. She works as a contributing artist and photographer for Archangel Images, The Book Cover Designer and runs her own budding photography studio, Gemma Johnson Photography. Her style is striking, dramatic and unique. Because her style is much darker than mine it was truly fun to step outside my comfort zone. I have to thank Gemma…
She got me to use myself as the model and it was not nearly as scary as I thought it would be…
I thought I would hate look at and edit myself but actually it’s not nearly as bad as I thought! You can view Gemma’s portfolio on her Website here!
Nain Leon – Nain is a young freelance photographer from Mexico City, Mexico and currently resides in San Antonio, Tx. He has a beautiful traditional portrait style with a great artistic flair. His wonderful portfolio of images can be viewed on his Facebook. This project was really fun and I even learned some Spanish terms I didn’t know before.
When I sent Nain the Photoshop file it was all in English. He sent it back to me in Spanish… HA!
When I opened the file I kept looking for folders in English. Thanks to Nain, I now know Horloge is Spanish for clocks! I enjoyed working with Nain! He was wonderful and helpful.
What the image is about…
In this image, purgatory is defined as a place of cleansing. Daily life is a cleansing rite of passage. As we live and experience trials and tribulations we are in essence going through a cleansing of priorities. The young version of ourselves looks forward to a time when we can be given more responsibilities. Keys represent a gaining these responsibilities. The young version of ourselves places a lot of importance on obtaining these responsibilities. However, as we go through life’s trials we begin to see that responsibilities and things are not nearly as important. We begin to place more importance on time. Time with our loved ones. Time to experience what we truly enjoy. This image represents that cleansing. This is the Purgatory of Life…
