“My work is a blending of photography and painting. I paint with a computer. Digital painting is an emerging art form where traditional painting techniques and styles are applied using a computer as a tube of paint and a digital tablet and stylus for a paint brush. Each brush stoke is applied individually, by hand. I consider the camera my sketchbook. When I look through the lens I see the beginning of a work if art. It is the bones on which to build.”
