3D graphics became an interest of mine when I started playing with a program of my
husband's called Ray Dream Studio. It didn't take long to become hooked. I enjoyed drawing
as a child and later took a few classes from a local artist, but 3D computer programs are
what truely give my ideas depth.
I use Ray Dream Studio, Poser, Detailer, Adobe Photoshop and Corel Photo-Paint
regularly in the creation of my images and occasionally Bryce, Painter and CorelDraw.
My artistic endeavors began as a boy in the mid-sixties with classes at Sara Brown's
portrait studio in Buckhead, GA. Her instruction led me through charcoal and into acrylic.
A few years later my family relocated to Rome, GA where I wandered into self study with
the exception of typical high school art classes and participation in minor local events
and competitions. My diligence earned me an honorable mention or two and as many sales.
I continued the natural progression of self study into oils through military service
managing to sell a fair number of paintings. Exiting the service I remained in Manitou
Springs, CO to paint landscapes and memorabilia for the tourist trade and eat brown rice
for a year or two.
Returning to Rome my interests turned to photography and I entered the Art Institute of
Atlanta. This period ended with the divorce of my first wife and a two year hermitage in
the woods. By a miraculous twist of fate I met my current wife and soul mate.
Unfortunately the necessity of earning a proper living forced my artwork into more or less
In the mid-eighties my brother in law gave us a Commodore 64 and I discovered computer
graphics. The unlimited potential rekindled my artistic desires. Upgrading to a PC I
discovered 3D where my wonderful wife and I have become totally engrossed.
