I find the possibilities offered by the manipulation of digital imagery fascinating. Coming from a painting background I continue to enjoy the freedom that digital manipulation offers when creating images. The precision, and ability to mix seemingly incompatible media, is both challenging and exciting. Working with photographs or drawing straight into the computer via a Wacom tablet I am able to tailor images and layouts to meet a variety of needs. These techniques also are used in the creation of artwork for book jackets (see various examples in the Book Design section).
