I am a digital artist who lives in the Tampa Bay area of Florida within the city of New Port Richey.
About ten years ago I began taking lots of photographs. I also started reading many photography books, studied the works of many great artists and took many online courses. In addition, I made a goal to learn Photoshop. Over these few years, photography and Photoshop have allowed me a new way to create. I have learned a lot but I want to keep learning more about photography and Photoshop.
My background has significant impact on my thoughts as expressed in my Art: I am from the South, I am a student of theology, psychology and sociology and enjoy Pop Culture. These often intersect and I love to take advantage of this in my Art.
For me, Art and the process of creating is difficult and easy; it is both rewarding and humbling.
I believe that Art is a language of the Soul; it is a way of translating intuitions, feelings or thoughts into a form that the world can see or experience. Although I love the way photography captures life in a 1/125th second, for me, digital collage has become a more interesting method of creating. I find collage compelling in the way it brings together unique or unrelated objects and forms a new meaning.
Thank you for looking at my Art. It is my hope that it will say something to you.
