Digital Art. 

Digital art refers to any artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as part of the creative or presentation process. It can also refer to computational art that uses and engages with digital media.[Wikipedia].

Of course, there's more to it than that. Where a more traditional artist will learn to use a brush and paint, a digital artist will learn to use a stylus/mouse and computer software. That is pretty much, in my own experience, where the differences lie. 

Digital Art has recently gained from some major developments in the world of artificial intelligence. This worries photographers and traditional artists but I strongly believe that our creativity is in recognising the subject matter and its potential in a more natural, human way. 


Artificial intelligence in art is in its infancy. In layman's terms, what the computer does is simply to help speed up a manual process which has been around for decades. But that process still requires knowledge of the software used and the skill to carry it out. 

A chef will use ingredients that blend together to create a stunning dish, widely accepted by the people who eat it. Similarly, a creative digital artist will use photos, light and colour to create a visual piece of art. In each case, the chef and the artist will use ingredients they've acquired. What is most important, in my opinion, are the clients. You either love Lobster Thermidor, or you don't. You will either love these images, or you won't. 

All my digital art uses images I've taken on my camera. These are blended together, often needing the sky to be replaced and often filled with additional features and settings that enhance or extend the original photograph into a more 'fantasy' creation. They are not meant to represent reality but an extension of where you can take an original photograph into new ideas and concepts. 

All creations in the gallery are available for printing onto acrylic, paper, aluminium etc. I also offer a downloadable copy if required. Please contact me for more information.
