The digital artwork is done with Corel Painter. Paper copies are printed to archival standard (long lasting, light fast) using Epson SureColor p600 with Ultrachrome ink on Bockingford inkjet paper.

I still use oil and other traditional media. Digital art is simply a different medium, and for me it is like combining collage, water color and charcoal. It requires hard work and planning and a finished piece might take two to ten hours. Work with digital art complements work with other media because it allows you to explore and strengthen ideas of composition, color and texture.
