Charles Bear specializes in wildlife and nature photography utilizing a very unique process working with ceramic tile to create beautifully framed tile mosaics. The process brings an image alive with the incredible intensity of colors and hues giving life and depth to his photos and produces a very dramatic effect when exhibited in the gallery or home.
His “Artistry of Wings Collection” is unique and truly an artistic transformation of color photographs into ceramic tile mosaics. It includes a wide variety of birds from the elusive Painted Bunting to the magnificent Great Blue Heron, White Pelicans, song birds and waterfowl.
Also included in his “Natures Wild Side Collection” are wild animals from South Africa, South America, Australia and more recently Alaska’s amazing coastal Brown Bears.
