Enter the portal to my world at JannAlexander.com: As publisher of my photographs, paintings, design, writing and creative ideas, I find my focus in seeing, exploring and recording life's details—like the scenic gumbo that is my Vanishing Austin photography series, and the paintings and prints I call Lightscapes. Or writing for my blog on creativity, art + what goes with it, and my travels around my hometown, Austin, Texas and back in time, at AustinDetails.me. Or thinking big picture when I'm creating business communications for marketing at BigPictureWriting.com. Creative collaboration is a key part of my process. And it all comes together on my art + photo + words blog, Pairings :: Art + What Goes With It, at AustinDetails.me, where my art meets tech.
