I think of photography as left brain and drawing as right brain. My camera has an infinite number of calculations to get the photo present before me. My pencil and brush make marks on a canvas subject to my imagination to form an image inspired from photography and represented in graphic design.
I like loose and impressionistic art as opposed to photo-realism. There is an even split between urban and nature images in my library custom art and design. A number of original sketches and painting are being integrated with Photoshop and Corel Painter. Living in Reno provides me with many events and scenic views of the natural wonders to capture and interpret in my art.
I mainly do Commercial art -- that is creating to some commercial constraints such as marketing goals. When I relax from the job I am involved in fine art – this is purely a result of the inspiration of the artist, commercial art is based on some level of business or functional requirements. My Fine art is art developed primarily for aesthetics or beauty, distinguishing it from applied art, which also must serve some practical function.
