I believe the digital medium is finding its place in the art world, and that artists should use, value and enjoy all available means of creative expression. I hope that artists and art lovers everywhere continue to push the boundaries of what constitutes a fine art medium.
As a child, I would draw and paint at any opportunity. My Mother was the head of the computer science department at a local community college, and did some work in artificial intelligence for NASA. My father was an engineer for Ford Aerospace. We had a computer in the house when not very many people had home computers. I used to doodle on used punch cards and green and white striped pin fed printer paper.
I began drawing - pixel by pixel - on an Apple II computer when I was about 13. Throughout high school and college I practiced art and design, and during this time I started digital painting. I also continued working with traditional media. I left college early to begin a graphic design career and continued to teach myself and explore new digital media. I began using 3D software in 1998 and finally felt I had really found the medium that best let me express my artistic ideas.
I began showing and selling prints of my work in 2003, and I now do so through my own website, as well as in phyisical galleries here in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. I am always looking for new venues, and hope to expand this list in coming years.
