Digital Images Exceeding the Sum of Their Parts
I am a digital artist in the Pacific Northwest captivated by the creative challenge of weaving together a variety of visual elements to form distinctive fine art images. Using fine art papers and archival inks, I give digital images the freedom to take on their own look and feel—not bound by the visual characteristics of traditional media.
My inspiration is drawn from the nature that surrounds me. Landscapes, textures, colors, shapes, and the elements in our environment form the palette for my creations. Unlike photographers, my creativity starts after the shutter is pressed. With my library of photographs and digital technology, I create images by blending together natural textures and elements to bring an organic feel to the image. Maintaining flexibility and nurturing discovery throughout the process allows the image to evolve. Balancing abstraction with plausibility along with strong use of color invokes the viewer’s interest.
For me, the creative process is not complete until a printed image is created. The image on the monitor looks very different from a physical print. Evaluating early prints always requires adjustments to reach the final fine art printed image.

I digitally bring together different images, textures, and visual elements that complement one another to create a distinctive fine art image. Digital fine art prints are their own medium.”
