Guest writer, artist and reviewist for Advanced Photoshop Magazine
My works can be seen as greeting cards with Tree Free Greetings, and puzzles with Buffalo Games, Canada Group, and others.
I create whatever comes pouring out of my carousel mind at any given moment. Could be surreal… could be romantic… could be poignant. It is as much of a journey for me, as being in a foreign country and deciding which road to walk down. One thing for sure is that I can’t hold it back. It is thrilling to see what new jewel I can pluck from my imagination, or what well-loved treasure I decide to bring out for a polish. Either way… it’s bound to attract some curious onlookers, who will either stick around to see what comes next, or who will head on down the road to find their own eclectic collection. All I hope is that I can at least tuck a little inspiration in their pocket before they go.
My artwork is a blend of photography, digital art, and traditional art. It is all self-taught.
By combining various methods of photography, digital manipulation, hand painting, and textured layering…I achieve the look I am after. I use an Intuos3 Wacom tablet, which is like a huge digital sketch pad. This allows me to utilize my traditional art skills in countless ways, in the same way someone might use charcoal on paper, or paint to canvas.
