ARTWORK

I enjoy combining traditional methods of craftsmanship with contemporary digital techniques to create fine art, often featuring inspirational quotes.

 

I begin the process by individually hand-lettering all of the text using black ink, after which  I scan the resultant calligraphy at high resolution into Adobe Photoshop. I then carefully size, colour and position the various elements until I am happy with the overall composition.

 

A benefit of this process is that it allows me to explore creative possibilities, incorporating backgrounds using my own photography and paintings. I also incorporate the watercolour paintings of my daughter, Lorraine.
