Studio in Blue Fine Art and Illustration Classic

Artist’s Statement

Istarted my career as a graphic designer and illustrator but gravitated towards fine art as my experimentation in color drifted outside the gamut possible with traditional printing techniques. I've recently drifted back to digital as I become more adept at three dimensional modeling and rendering in programs like E-on's Vue and Newtek's Lightwave. Early illustration lessons still influences my art as each work uses  color and light to direct attention to the subject of the piece.

When painting with acrylic, I believe that the canvas is where the true color mixing begins. The colors on my palette are therefore loosely folded together before being applied. Digital pieces are created using the same principles behind my paintings, even when working with 3d objects (only I define color with lighting and layers instead).

The subject matter itself is often chosen for humor, expressed either as visual irony or lighthearted observation, and as an award winning and internationally collected artist, it is my sincerest hope to that there might be something here that brightens your home or office as well.

Art is a joy. I love discovering something new or giving the viewer an excuse to smile (not always in the same painting, but that's my true objective).

Fine Art Portfolio

I render fine art with humor and whimsy (most of the time). When working traditionally,  I almost exclusively paint in acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas but have been known to augment occasionally with Prismacolor and india ink. My primary programs are Photoshop, Lightwave, and Eon Vue with a little Illustrator thrown in.  I’m happy to speak process if you want to know more.
