Today's "living with art" winning share comes from Leanne of Leanne Stamatellos Photography. She used 4x6 photos framed and matted to a 10x10 size and displays them sitting on Ikea photo timber rails. She says, "I love that the photos can be changed as the children get older and they look perfectly straight on the wall since there is no need for nails - they have the shelf for support." What a great way to make a big impact from small prints! We love the clean, modern look she's created in this dining room.
From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
