I'm a lifetime artist with some but not an extensive amount of formal training. I took up drawing as a small child and built up my skills over a lifetime. My constant urge has always been to create. More recently I felt the urge to create digital artwork. The elements in my pictures are from my own photos. Mostly, I take digital photos, but I also use my old photographs and slides dating back decades. Occasionally I will create parts in Adobe Illustrator.
