I Draw With A Mouse
I take pleasure in the challenge of
creating something organic,
expressive, comforting, and painterly,
out of something wholly inorganic and
insentient in an attempt to achieve a
graceful pas de deux between
technology and fine art. I use a
computer and software as the primary
tools in the realization of my vision.
Rather than using photography, I start
with a "blank canvas" and draw with a
mouse. Sometimes I use organic
substances: bits of found things such
as tree bark and leaves, shells and
wasp hives, which I scan in to add
texture and dimension to my work.
What draws most artists to this new
process is that digital technology, in
relation to art, has progressed to the
point of endless creative
possibilities. With digital technology
you are not only able to capture the
look and feel of traditional media;
you now have the capacity to create
firsthand images with depth.
My work has appeared in the feature
film Universal Signs, as well as
juried exhibitions, galleries in CT,
NY, NJ and CA, and is included in
private collections in the U.S.,
Europe and Japan.
I have a Bachelor's degree in music.
Life, I am learning in degrees through
Buddhism. These two disciplines are
integrated into my work, informing its
lyricism and heart.
