From grade school my ability to draw was evident amongst my classmates. In high school I did my first oil, acrylic, tempera and watercolor paintings. In college I became more serious with photography as it was a requirement for the art program I graduated from. I purchased a totally manual (film) camera, developing film in my classes at college.
After college I have had a long career in graphic arts, through this I have and am currently proficient in Adobe Creative Suite. My work with a MAC has merged with the art of my youth into digital photography and other technical aspects I have used to enhance and integrate into my unique style, a hybrid of digital art & photography.
