Painting with Pixels. Sculpting with Light
My illustrations have no reference point beyond my imagination...no models or scenery, no camera or lens, not even ink or paint; just my imagination and the tools made possible by modern technology. Using a digitized stylus and graphics tablet along with specialized software, I mix and apply my own digital "paint" directly onto the virtual canvas of my computer screen. My illustrations are whimsical expressions of my fascination with the translucent, reflective and sculptural properties of glass. The finished images are exposed by red, blue and green lasers onto light-sensitive, metallic papers. No inks are used in the process. The "light-jet prints" are cold-fused between highly refined, acrylic face plates and composite backs, making each work of art truly one of a kind.
