“TO BE ABLE TO TRANSFORM MULTIPLE IMAGES INTO ONE AND CREATE AN ART PIECE…PRICELESS!”
About the Artist: I was born in Colombia, married the love of my life and raised two high-spirited and happy children. I live in Encinitas, one of the most exquisite cities inside America’s Finest City, San Diego, California.
Passion for photography was inspired by photographing my family. In 2011, I spent 5 weeks in India which allowed me to see the world differently through my camera lens. A new aesthetic was born within me; observation, color, humanity, life energy.
When I returned to San Diego, I toured every nook and cranny of my beloved city and beyond looking through this new prism. After some years and thousands of images collected, someone asked, what are you going to do with all those images? Well, in 2015 I was exposed to Photoshop Artistry with Sebastian Michaels and discovered the endless possibilities of using and incorporating my images into works of art. Inspiration and passion intensified. So my journey continues….
My desire through this medium “Digital Art” is to convey a personal expression more than a realistic rendering of a subject. I love “storytelling” through my art. I use Photoshop to transform drawings and my photography into many different styles of art. It can mimic different mediums – from acrylics to oil and pastels. Just as an artist uses a brush, a sculptor uses clay, I as a digital artist, use a computer screen as my canvas to create…this enables me to explore my imagination in infinitude.
Above is Trombone Fourth of eight Silhouette series. I’m fascinated by Tonal Value, it is an artist prize possession of artistic mastery. This art piece reflects my tonal awareness.
