I began to play with photoshop in 2004 while editing some images of my husband Michael Hermesh’s sculpture. Often i would also take photographs for him of models in various positions for his sculpture. In that collection of photographs were photos of that i took of Michael wearing a military issue gas mask that he had found in an old residence in Vancouver many years ago. He wore the mask and had me take photos that he could use while he was working on his sculpture called “The Rapture (Frank Gets Raptured)” which is now available as a bronze. Eventually I played with those photographs and they became the “Sirens” series of montages. I was hooked! and since then I have gone on to do many montages for various shows that I have participated in.
