I believe that art should be enjoyable. It can inspire and evoke emotions. That is what I try and do with my art. Evoke a mood or feeling. Sometimes though, a pretty picture is just a pretty picture and that is a good thing.
I like to experiment and sometimes that means pure digital manipulation or the fusion of digital manipulation with more traditional styles. Filters, lighting effects, combined with traditional brush strokes. It is all fair game.
My main focus has become photography with an emphasis on landscapes and nature. I still consider myself a painter first. For now, what I see through the lens will be how I express myself artistically. I travel often and feel myself very fortunate that I can. I strive for unusual angles and different ways of seeing the ordinary.
