Photomanipulations are art images that exist only within the digital realm of the computer until brought to life through the printing process. Unlike thick oil or acrylic paints a digital image must discover texture without the aide of a 3-D world because a print is flat and smooth. Pixels, grains, and high contrasts are allowed within the resulting prints intentionally to give the image texture and added depth; Pixels and ripples are modern brush strokes much like the Impressionists and Pointillist strokes of days gone by. My digital art works begin with either a photograph straight from the camera, a scanned photograph, or a scan of an original drawing or painting. The image is then carefully worked through various digital programs to produce results that express a blending of humanity and technology.
