The marriage of digital and traditional art serves as a lush estuary of creativity for me. I constantly make efforts to place myself within the intersection of multiple media. This enables me to choose a number of appropriate paths for each project. The media that I follow for each project commonly command the direction of artistic exploration and discovery. Through this journey, a fresh, finished work emerges. My desire to discover and learn is what drives my work forward. My most recent work embraces computer programming to create interactive design/sound/video pieces, from which I take imagery to create individual pieces in traditional formats, such as print, photography, and paint.
