Hello and welcome!!! I will tell you a little about myself.
I've been drawing and painting since I was a child. My paternal grandmother bought me my first oil paints ( in a wooden box), brushes and canvas, I was 8 years old. I was thinking about this the other day, and I remembered my first painting was a ballerina, and I gave it to my maternal grandmother, and over a long stretch of time, it has disappeared, which is too bad because I think my kids would have found it to be funny!!
I took art classes in school and when I was raising my children, I did some drawing and painting, usually for gifts.
About 11 years ago I began painting images on the computer using various software. And this has become my passion. And I hope that at least in some of my artwork, that passion is visible.
I was born in a small town of in the heart of the finger lakes region. I'm not sure when I became interested in art. I started painting with water colors and Acrylics while I was in Canada for a while during the Viet Nam war. I became serious about art a short while after my tour of duty in Viet Nam. while I was getting a degree in Computer Science.
Today all of my art is done on a computer using various programs and techniques. My works tend to be eclectic , from straight unmodified photographs, to digitally painted 'mindscapes' . I like to have fun and experiment with different methods and tools. My goal is to evoke some response in the viewer, doesn't matter to me what the response is. The worst insult you can give me is to be indifferent to my work.
I have works in private collections throughout the world.
