abstract and digital artist from Texas. Painting since 1996, digital since 2000. I like to create bright vivid bold art fill of colors and energy. i use acrylic and oil paint to create the original artwork. I then have the artwork photographed. That's when i bring it into the computer. Where i combine my different pieces and add effects. I call this process "Hybrid Digital Art. Of course some of my paintings stay as original paintings. Like the thick paint splatter paintings.

My art is so much a part of me. It makes me happy, it makes me motivated. It drives me to be the best artist that i can. The different moods, and the different aspects of my work are constantly changing. If im not satisfied in my own mind with a particular piece. I dont rest until it is satisfactory to me.
