Licensing inquiries welcome I have abandoned the strict adherence to traditional hierarchies of media and embraced new means, including technological, to create my body of work. Digital technology has changed the way I paint and has become an essential part of my creative process. I first tapped into the “new media” realm in 2000.
By design, my digital art paintings are contemporary. I often incorporate both my traditional style, original, abstract paintings along with my non-traditional digital painting’s. I then flip painting medias using new-media tools like Photoshop, Wacom. Illustrator, as well as other creative software programs to create, unique one of a kind artworks. Most are large scale and some with repeat patterns. Each of my digital paintings are scalable and can be reconfigured to accommodate most new product, and design applications. Most of my current work has been developed and designed specific to a Hotel and or a lifestyle brand. I also license my artwork for fine art prints, art murals, surface and textile patterns,
I am considered established. My body of work is prolific and versatile by nature.
