Digital Painting (2017 - Present)
I create art using custom software I program to meet my vision. So much I see in my mind’s eye would take hundreds of hours to complete by hand, slowing my prolific nature. In 2014, following a decade long day-job in web development, I began coding creatively, writing algorithms based on my ideas about art and design. After thousands of hours of programming, I’ve finally begun to make art with the software that’s become an extension of my mind and hand. I get asked why I don’t just use Photoshop like other artists. Photoshop is great, I tell them, but it doesn’t do nearly what I need it to do. Besides, I think art is best when it encompasses the totality of an artist’s life, experiences, and abilities. I’ve enjoyed nothing more than taking my work from canvas to digital, utilizing my maximum potential to accomplish the challenge.
