There has been much talk about digital art and what it is and if it is a legitimate art form.
Recently someone took someone else’s work added a few basic adjustments, such as contrast, brightness etc and entered the work in a competition as their own. This is obviously not an acceptable thing to do.
With my digital art, I take a series of images that I have shot or have the rights to use and then combine the layers. Most of my pieces have over 30 layers in them, most are over 100. This is a combination of images, textures and grunge effects. Most of my pieces are done over many, many hours, often days and weeks. This is what I refer to as digital art.
I have found it a great release for me and it has really drawn me out of my comfort zone and I have been able to create pieces that express deep meaning.

This is a piece I did on always being watched over, even in the traumatic times of my life when I felt very alone.
