Artists have always embraced the newest technologies and sciences to express themselves. I should refer to the printing press, etching plates, photography in the late eighteen hundreds, and of course more recently the computer.
I use, as did generations of artists before me, the tools at hand to make marks. Instead of drawing on paper or parchment, I draw on a screen. Instead of using a pen, brush, pencil or pallet knife, I use my finger or an Apple pen. In some ways using my finger gives me the feeling of having a more direct attachment to the work.
The work can be printed on many surfaces, (acrylic, glass, wood, canvas, almost any surface you can think of) and because the drawing is a digital file it can be reproduced as a carpet, tapestry or clothing material.
