About AprilRoseMore

At 16 years old, I was the youngest member ever accepted into the Watercolor Society of Oregon. I learned from some of the best nationally known jurors and my Mom, who was an artist and a teacher and owned a gallery on the Ashland plaza for 10 years. Since I became a full time professional photographer in 2008, my work has been published in "Spectacular Wineries of Oregon", "Southern Oregon Magazine", "Oregon Wine Press", and on a variety of novel book covers including national best seller, "The Magician's Lie", by Greer Macallister. It is displayed on marketing materials, buses and permanently installed in Belle Fiore Estate and Vineyard's wine tasting room. I am also known as Whimsical Eye Photography for family portraiture and commercial work, Avril Rose Images for fine art nudes and sensual boudoir, as well as my former married name, April Metternich.

My goal is to level up beyond my region of Southern Oregon, expand my income, travel the world, blog, and make people feel beautiful wherever I go.
