You have used different media in your career to express your work, painting, photography … Why did you switch from traditional art to digital art?
My painting technique was very detailed and laborious. I used ancient glazing techniques and set a standard for myself that I couldn’t take into the real world.
In graduate school, some of the teachers expressed concern about the pace of my art making. I soon realized that I needed to speed things up in order to make a living at art. I also discovered that my paintings were progressing slower than my growth as an artist.
