Peta is a photographic artist from New Zealand, currently living in McKinney, Texas. Also resided 15 years in Clovis.
Using a combination of her lyrical eye and a mother's soul, Peta has a poet's desire to turn a photograph into a narrative.
Whether it be portraiture, nature, or urban decay, her delicate sensibility reveals her subject with their guard down; lit in an honest, romantic and often playful light.
With a background in textiles and the opportunities that new technology offers, her post-work further enhances deeper levels of expression, often adding skillful texturing, aging and warmth. Peta uses her own photographed images for this process.
Her technique, tasteful and inventive though it is, never interferes with the purpose of the picture - rather it reinforces the image in an emotive and tangible way.
