I was born in the middle of the last century and have lived almost all of my life in or near Chicago, though I've had the good fortune to travel many places - across the U.S. and abroad to Mexico, the Caribbean, Canada, throughout much of Europe and parts of the Middle East.
"Art" in general has been a source of interest since as far back as I can remember. My father was a commercial artist (advertising) who also painted as a sideline, so while growing up there were always paints, pencils, pens and markers of various sorts around. As for "computer art", as soon as I got my first PC back in 1992 I began playing around with DOS-based fractal programs (Fractint, Fractool) which took many hours to render simple patterns, but they intrigued me and got me started.
My imagery is mostly abstract, often involving elements of fractal symmetry and forms or textures with an organic feel. The basic elements or points of departure for my imagery come from a variety of software, and I often use output from several programs to create a final image. Some of the programs I use relate to rather specialized areas of mathematics. I freely admit to understanding very little of the underlying theories, but I like the concepts, relationships, and patterns they describe or reveal.
