Describing my creative process is often difficult. If a descriptive tag is required I call it Digital Fusion: a merging of painting, photography and computer technology. The resulting digital medium gives me the ability to express my thoughts as they occur and the flexibility to change them as I watch my art take on a life of it’s own. My work has been described as birthed within a digital camera and nurtured to maturity within a computer.
With imagination, a graphics tablet and a myriad of graphic interfaces I create my digital expressions much like a traditional visual artist creates with their brush and canvas.
color, lyrical movement, forceful line, and
complex imagery are just a few of
the adjectives used to describe my work. I offer
it as a personal expression
portraying my thoughts, dreams and frustrations. I rarely
explain my art, preferring to leave
it to your interpretation. What I feel while
creating a piece has no more
validity then what you feel when seeing it.
Your interpretation will be developed based
on your experience, a
personal experience and the only one that should
have any value to you.
"Digital fusion is an emerging art form which expands the boundaries of traditional photography by allowing the artist to create directly on a computer, merging the digital camera and the computer into a singular tool of artistic expression. Through the use of a growing arsenal of graphic interfaces the artist creates an environment similar to a traditional visual artist. The resulting creation in an original image exploding with color and imagery."
