About the Artist

Dale Hoopingarner

I have been an avid nature lover all my life, starting with early Boy Scout campouts and hikes and continuing with gardening and kayaking today. I love the scanner photography technique – the way the detail and depth preserves the transient beauty of flowers. I never know for sure what combination of flowers and plants will work best on the scanner, so it is always a joyous act of discovery when a beautiful picture emerges on the computer screen.

I first learned the scanner photography technique from Ellen Hoverkamp, a Connecticut-based artist and teacher, through a seminar at Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Boylston, Massachusetts. My work tends more towards specimens and “growing” settings, whereas Ellen’s artistry is displayed with her tasteful bouquets and elegant arrangements. Ellen’s work can be viewed at http://www.myneighborsgarden.com.
