Statement : 

As a painter and digital designer, my artistic work has an important place in today’s art world by merging both traditional and digital artwork in one cohesive style. My work is inspired by Alan Fletcher, Herbert Bayer, Max Miedinger, Irina Furman, Paul Cezanne, and Wayne Thiebaud.

The two media styles I chose to work in are oil painting and digital artist. I like to paint realistic still life paintings such as “Fruits,” “Creamer & Bottles,” “Cakes,” and “Wine Glass & Flowers”. Each painting canvas that I make measures between 16″ x 20″ to 20″ x 20″. I use oil paints along with digital designs to create my artwork. While working in digital media, I use my DSLR Canon camera to take various photographs. My favorite photo images are animals, landscapes including trees, mountains, and even images of Las Vegas including my “A Pathway of Lights” photograph. I upload my images to the computer and use the special programs of Adobe Photoshop to touch up the photos. Next, I transfer them to Adobe InDesign to use them for bookmarks, postcards, and posters such as “NaviGuide”. For my posters, I use Adobe Photoshop brushes, and typography to create them like my “Expose Exhibition” and “Wishes” poster artwork.

A quote from Neville Brody, a famous London, England graphic artist states, “Digital design is like painting, except the paint never dries.” The quote represents a graphic designer’s thoughts on how your work is never done. Because I am a graphic designer and an artist, I put in my best-detailed craftsmanship and the time needed to complete each project
