My art is inextricably tied to technology; the software to make it; the hardware required of the software to render images; the printer to translate it from computer code to the real world. All these things are required if I am going to be able to make it and share it. There are two forms of digital images,VECTOR and BITMAP. My art resides in the later. The program I use, photoshop, is software for creation and editing of bitmap images. Bitmap images are made up of a map of pixels in a grid.  When I begin an artwork, like pixels in bitmap images, I like to start with building blocks that I will put together. A construction project of sorts. I build with color and shapes, putting  pieces together to build the whole composition. All of these bits amount to much for me. Making these artworks re-energizes me and I hope they do the same for you.
