Elise Ann Wormuth Photography

I am a Central California Coast photographer and digital artist.

I use a process called “texturing,” along with other methods, to manipulate photographs. The image develops not with a click of a button in Photoshop but rather with a painstaking sequence of steps that results in a work occupying a space in which it is neither a fake painting nor a faked photograph. The process involves experimentation and, well, magic.

I am drawn to the natural world and love to photograph both flora and fauna. I visit all the local flower society shows, attend Artist Access Days at Filoli, wander the Elkhorn Slough area seeking egrets or the UC Arboretum looking for hummingbirds. I hope that my work not only represents the beauty of my subjects but expresses my vision as well.

My work is shown in the Scotts Valley Artisans Gallery, 230-D Mount Hermon Rd., Scotts Valley, CA 95066. Phone number: (831) 439-9094 Stop by and see my work in person!
