Though my work is listed as digital, I begin each image with acrylic paint, then
photograph, and digitally enhance the images. I begin by challenging myself with different painting surfaces like foil, paper, canvas, polyester and cotton to see if an inspiring image can appear to me from them. Why being with acrylic? The medium allows me flexibility to paint quickly. Painting allows me to obtain a depth more than strictly digital work does. I enjoy having the physicality of painting in my work. Why transfer the images to digital? It allows me to enhance the colors, texture and details that can be lost in paint on canvas. The images are highly intuitive in their creation and do not refer to anything specifically. The images are 30x20 inkjet prints on acid free paper. I consider myself a digital artist, and love exploring the endless possabilities of creating my art with the use of the computer.
