My professional fancy name is Deni Cary Phillips, but you can just call me Deni. What you're seeing on this site is the accumulated work of decades, in a couple of styles I've developed over time -- painterly and fine-art documentary. Painterly is rather self-explanatory, and is by far my favorite work to create. Fine-art documentary is terminology I made up to describe photographs of objects and places you'll find familiar, but from a slightly different angle, a little more panache.
Self-taught in the early years, I migrated from film to dslr/digital, And with that I was able to edit my own work to create the art you see today. It's been a process!
Nature is the star of the show in most of my photographs -- the original artist.
Philosophically, I am drawn to nature's relationships -- how the rock and root intertwine, the way a rotting tree produces new fungal life, or how a tree manages to grow from so little soil perched high on a rocky canyon wall. I'm equally interested in the mood these elements adopt in changing light.
My home in central Missouri provides access to lovely colors throughout the seasons, while travel offers new vistas and places. I'm drawn to form and color, but always with emotional emphasis.
I'm privileged to enjoy a number of gallery opportunities, and some of my older photos are favorites -- but I'm especially thrilled to offer new work through this, my online art store. There are just so many options that I can't offer in a gallery setting, and you get to choose what is right for you. Don't miss the chance to play with the Wall Display feature!
Please enjoy looking through my photos -- and please, reach out. I'd love to hear your thoughts on my work, and help you with choosing what's best for your space.
