"My philosophy is that there is a bit of the artist in everyone and that the process of creating is a wonderful way to keep one's sanity - it works for me anyway."

"While each digital painting begins life as one of my original photos the process to alter it is labor-intensive (in other words, it's not a photo ran through a filter). In any case, a computer can't replicate an artist's eye for color and composition; those still have to come from the same place they do in any artist. For me, my computer is just a tool, like a brush or pen." "I have been a graphic designer for close to thirty years. I have been painting watercolors for over twenty-five and taking pictures since I was a kid. My digital art is a fusion of my love for photography and watercolor and I've tried to capture the essence of both."
