Artist Statement

The profound impact of digital technology on traditional art is only beginning to be acknowledged.

With digital technology, pigment is not necessary, color and texture can be created instantly, entire compositions can be transformed with just the touch of a cursor.

In time, digital media may replace traditional paint and charcoal just as the automobile replaced the horse and buggy.

But whether the artist is working with digital media or traditional art media, it is the mind and soul of the artist, not the tools used, which determines the aesthetic experience of the work of art for both artist and audience.
