I graduated from San Jose State University in 1974 with a BA in Art. I have always tried to stay connected to my creative roots but have worked in many different career fields. I would like to get back to my creative roots. I just feel happier when I am creating. I taught digital Art in Junior High and had a blast. I love the tools and the students stayed engaged during classes. I finally have time to re-upgrade my skill set and have discoved ways to take digital images (photos) and turn them into artistic renderings. I use drawings and photos as a basis, then use my other skills to turm them into artistic images. I find ways to let the algorithms dance, texures illude and the colors harmonize.
