For the first 10 years or so of my career I painted exclusively in watercolor, with a touch of acrylic on some pieces. In 2004 I became enamored with digital art, and the more I began to like it, the more dissatisfied I became with my own paintings. So, I set aside my watercolors, bought a digital art tablet, Corel Painter 7 and Adobe Photoshop CS and began experimenting. It was a lot more difficult to learn than I assumed it would be, especially because I do not have a lot of experience with computers, so I spent countless hours surfing the internet looking for any and all digital art tutorials that I could find. My first digital paintings were actually hybrid works, where I mixed watercolor elements with digital ones, but eventually I became comfortable enough working with the digital art programs that I completed the transition to fully digital works. Now I do all of my work digitally, from the preliminary sketch to the finished product, and when I look at my watercolor art compared to my digital art, my watercolor pieces look unfinished to me somehow, almost as if they are color studies.
One of the positive side effects of keeping one eye on the artistic side of the art business and the other on the practical side is that I have had the good fortune to have companies approach me to have my artwork produced not only as limited edition prints, but also into a variety of other products, including statues, journals, art books and calendars, mugs, key-chains, magnets, pins, ornaments, stickers, and t-shirts. You can find products featuring my work in several catalogues, in retail outlets throughout the world, and all over the internet.
