More about Artwork and Artist: Although I work with several types of digital media, I favor the use of 3-d software for my photographic and mixed media artwork. Using software similar to the kind used to create 3-d animated films, a composition or world is built and arranged within the virtual environment of the computer. This virtual world can then be 'photographed' (rendered) from any angle: top, bottom or sides. The 3-d digital process is a unique and time-intensive process that can be thought of as a combination of sculpting and photography. My imagery is whimsical and unconventional, playful and serious. Chess references appear frequently in my work and although I'm not a chess player, I'm inspired by the game for representing life's choices and challenges, victories and defeats. I believe the development of digital work as fine art media is exciting and exploring various types of digital media continues to be very meaningful to me. The present day is an exciting time for digital media, similar to the time when traditional photography was new and was not yet well understood as a fine art medium.

The photographic prints are on professional Fujicolor Crystal Archive and Kodak Supra Endura papers. The mixed media works are archival ink on 100% cotton paper mounted on canvas, which is then hand-textured and matte varnished. All artwork is hand-signed and with proper care it should last you a lifetime.

Some additional facts about me are: a) a palmist told me that I have a creative gift sign in my palm; it is a star of 3 intersecting lines in my left palm right below my third finger and b) the first cash I received for my artwork was in fourth grade when I won $20 for a poster that I drew for a parish-wide contest.

Joe was a positive force, another one of the good guys in life; and he helped and encouraged me to pursue my digital artwork. They will be missed.

Me and my mac -- my simple work setup

More Facts:

I'm exploring technology from a fine art perspective and I feel lucky to be an artist working with digital media.

Sometimes people who've seen some of my early realistic work in traditional media have asked me why I went digital. And the short answer is that it felt right.

In part, it was attractive and exciting to be able to work with something new, something that's largely unexplored territory in the art world. And in part, it better suits my work style, which as you can see from the photo above is fairly simple. To me, it feels less complicated to work with the computer and I was drawn to that feeling. However, creating digital work is not a fast process. The pieces take a long time to complete, usually about a month for each one.

I gratefully acknowledge datasets from 3D Cafe and Platinum Pictures in creating my work.
