Welcome to CLIQUE!

I can trace my love of photography back three generations, to the early 1900s and my paternal great-grandfather, Henry Mattson. I have a really cool photo that he took of the old family homestead in Minnesota, sometime before 1910. According to family history, Grampa Mattson frequently took photos of his world - the people and places that he loved.

It warms my heart to know that this love of photography didn't skip any generations as it passed down to me! I am blessed to have such a legacy and I hope to pass it on to my own children and grandchildren some day.

I experience a physical and spiritual thrill whenever the Lord shows Himself in His marvelous creation around us and in the people I meet. My dream vacation would be to spend a year or two just traveling around the US, stopping at little out of the way places and photographing the interesting characters and the beauty of nature to be found along the way - those things that draw me closer to GOD and help point others to Him, too.

Textured Photos

My current digital interest is adding textures to my photos. Some of these images are duplicated, but if you look closely, you'll see they are not identical, due to the variety of textures and blending modes used. It is my hope that I might find a market for this type of artistic style and bring in a little income while sharing the beauty and majesty of GOD's creation.

These are so wonderful. I love the look of the textured look. Really makes the modern photos look ancient. Gives them a whole new look.
You need to put your photos in a digi book and sell them. I KNOW that it would sell!!!
