I have been creating art for most of my life, including a bachelor of fine arts from University of Connecticut. A few years ago I put down my brushes and picked up my iPad. I found a digit art app and started To figure out how to manipulate the app to work with my style. Bright color, layering of shadows, just as I do in my oil paintings, is what interests me most with this medium, not to mention no nasty brushes to clean and fumes to breathe.
I still take out real paints and brushes on occasion, but it's a lot easier to carry around an iPad than an easel.
Since the original paintings are digital, I have them printed out as geclees using archival paper and inks. The result is bright, heavy ink that reminds me of peasant paintings from China.
I have created over 200 Images. I've been commissioned by over 50 people to digitally paint their dogs and wedding bouquets.
