A few basics: I am in my 40s,a retail manager at a chocolate company
I have a BS in Art Education but haven't actively taught, it did give me a broad background in the visual arts though. I still paint on occaision but have mostly moved to digital. Photography has been my main medium until the last year when i wandered into 3D.
My main programs are Vue (currently Vue 7 Complete), MoI (Moment of Inspiration - a NURBS modeling program), Photoshop Elements, and Daz3D. I have used Blender and Bryce in the past but am not actively doing so now.
