I come from a family of artists and learnt from a young age how to capture reality and imagery from the imagination in a variety of art forms. Computer based art was at first simply another artistic avenue to explore, but I was drawn to the precision allowed by computers and also the compelling fractal imagery that emerged in the early 1990’s.
A large proportion of my earlier work was unconscious exploration of the medium and the techniques used to create various styles of digital art. I began to seriously pursue digital art as an artistic medium when I developed my own style by replicating images from my imagination on the computer screen.
I draw inspiration from nature, science, art, music, technology, geometry, patterns architecture and philosophy. Primitive and world art, renaissance art, early Australian art, surrealism and op-art are some of my primary ‘artistic’ influences.
