From the coast to the country

“The coop is my Zen Garden!”

That’s the quote that stuck in my mind when I had the opportunity to photograph Wendy Mcgrew. Moving from the coast to the country, she left San Diego and began Distinctive Building Materials. A custom shop in Milton, Ga specializing in re-purposing antique wood reclaimed from period buildings. Her beautiful work can be found at This talented artist also has a green thumb. Her workshop is surrounded by her garden and a modest chicken farm home to over fifty chickens, turkeys, and even a tame squirrel….All of which followed us like puppies as we moved from shot to shot.

” There’s nothing better than looking out at all the chickens and turkeys at the end of a busy day…They are always happy to see us!”
