I am a digital artist who uses soft, flowing images with luminous colors to express concepts and emotions. Mindfulness and being in the moment is a strong concept in my work. I prefer soft images with luminous colors that blend seamlessly and apply various techniques to increase the luminosity of my colors. With some of my work a color itself may be the subject but in almost all cases color is more important than the forms through which it is expressed.
Most of my pieces start with a basic idea which could be based on something from nature, an object, the lyrics of a song or possibly just a shape or set of colors. As I work with colors and shapes the process of flow takes over and my intuition often takes the piece in an entirely different direction from where I initially planned it to go. Frequently, after “completing” a work I have new insights and will create an alternate version which can then take on a life of its own. This can lead to a series of paintings based upon a common theme or starting point. Like most artists, my style is in a continuous state of evolution.
I employ a variety of different software tools to create the art on display here and am always searching for new tools to create unique effects. Although I started my art career as a traditional artist working with oil and acrylic paint, I was eventually drawn to digital art because of the freedom and versatility it provides.
In particular it allows me to experiment more freely than I can with a brush on canvas. I can start with a set of colors or images and move down multiple different paths to reach the end result I like most. I can change or add to the colors, the shapes, level of transparency and degree of blending. I have full control over the process of creation and am not limited by the physical constraints of the material world.
All of the art on display can be produced in different sizes or depths and can be printed on canvas, metal, acetate or other substances. I also accept commissions to create artwork based on your input to match the décor in a specific room or evoke a concept or emotion.
I hope you enjoy my art and welcome your thoughts and comments.
