Digital media fascinates and inspires me. Since participating in my first Photoshop Class in 1998, digital imaging has become a creative tool for my art. I continually investigate software and the use the power of these tools for creating art. All my explorations into creating images led me to pursuing alternative sources for printing those images. At this time digitally printed alternative surfaces drives my work and is a major component of my artwork.
What started out as a way to document, show and promote my work moved into creating elements to enhance it and then became an artistic way of life. In 2005 the Arizona Commission on the Arts awarded me an artist project grant for my submission “Expanding the Digital Print to Uncommon Surfaces”. At this point I became immersed in constructing every imaginable surface suitable for printing. In the years since I have printed thousands of creative original surfaces on my “art printers”.
My Digital Alternative Surfaces site, including Digital Alternative Studio and Digital Alternative Journaling, are a reflection of my work in all phases of digital printing on alternative surfaces. I will continue to fill these pages with artwork, printed surfaces, studio work, creative process, tutorials, digital journaling techniques, materials for purchase and more. I invite you to join me on my journey.
