My favorite thing about working with the digital medium, is that it allows me to merge photography and painting in a way that acrylic, watercolor, oil paint, and serigraph cannot do. The ability to work with adding and subtracting layers opens the door to complexity, the opposite of minimizing. With the possibility of photographing objects hundreds of times and using cut and paste software to construct a final image, I can create a picture that comes from imagination or dreams. With a digital stylus that can paint on a computer screen it is possible for me to paint freehand and use the painting techniques of 17th and 18th century painters. Digital is truly a new tool for artists to explore.
All of my pictures are created in my own studio using a computer with hardware input from a large format high resolution camera and a digital painting tablet that allows onscreen painting. Several kinds of software allow the creation of the imagery and export of pictures to a high resolution, six foot digital printer. The finished works are limited editions of archival pigment prints on hand made archival rag paper.
