To help get us ready for the holidays, we have asked Ellen Hoverkamp to give us a presentation of the process she uses to produce those incredible flatbed scanner photographs that have become renowned in this area.

She has been using this method since 1997. Through various shows and magazines, people have admired her work. She worked with Ken Druse to illustrate his book Natural Companions.

The program will consist of a presentation of some of her images featuring her collaborations and recent projects.

There will be a demonstration of the scanner, techniques, composition, tools, and ways that it can be of use to us in our gardening creations.

The special theme for this presentation will be about scanning evergreens for notecards, gift tags, and wrapping paper.
