I've won prizes with synthetic polymer paint!
I had careers in science and business. So I taught and practised informatics.
My medium is digital. My computers run Linux. And I draw on a pen display. I use vector graphics software. Avoiding the area restriction of bitmap images.
My art was therapy. In an art club, I'm in a digital media group. Occasionally in an urban group, I sketch interiors.
I'm a conscientious, abstract thinker. Experimenting varies results. My art explores technique. It's more conceptual than representational.
Judges have liked my manipulation of photography. And my audience is global.
I've won first prize for Digital Art.
Here are my animation, and recent drawing.
AnimationIn this project, I simulated a ball bouncing down a landscape.

The artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms.
In this medium, pigments are bound in drying oil. I used to occasionally paint a portrait in an A5 visual diary.
My recent activities were viewed through a camera.
This was outdoors, with pigments suspended in water.
