I am a forty-something living in the Metro-Atlanta area -- one of the few people who was actually born and raised here. I'm married and have two sons and a daughter. By day, I am a software engineer. But, by night I am a digital artist.
I have dual degrees from the University of Georgia, one in Computer Science, the other in Fine Art. So, it seems only natural that I attempt to combine the two by producing art using a computer, though I still pick up a brush from time to time to do some traditional art.
I started making art back in the late 1980's with a particular focus on fantasy illustration and paleo art (artwork depicting prehistoric creatures), but I created a good bit of wildlife, particularly North American animals. I grew up in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains and have spent a great deal of my life outdoors and have developed quite an appreciation for nature. More recently, I've gotten into making art with a Wild West theme and have found that I really enjoy it.
