I use a plethora of tools to create my work. I work in many different mediums including pen and ink; Intaglio (Etching); screen-printing; drawing with pencils, charcoals, pastels and conté crayons; oils; acrylics; clay bodies for pottery; fibers for fiber arts such as spinning yarns and threads and weaving; a pocket knife for whittling; and a computer for writing poetry and short stories.
I like art in all of its forms, but some I love better than others. I can study one of Rembrandts paintings all day long, but I also like Jean Michel Basquiat; Clifford Still; Marcel Duchamp; Salvador Dali; and Georgia O'Keeffe for masters of a more modern era. I enjoy graphic novels, book illustrations (most of them), and graffiti art. There is so much available in the world of art that it is difficult for me to pin down exactly what does float my boat. If I had to choose one are that speaks to my heart directly though, it would have to be Impressionism. I love the fluidity of the form and almost melancholy feel that it imposes.
Just a note: I just want to say that while it is obvious that most of my work on this site is not CGI, in truth, none of my work is CGI. I have nothing against computer generated imagery, in fact I love most of it -- I think it is beautiful and it has its merit, but I don't know how to do it, so I don't use the computer to create any of my work.
