I am a Corel Elite Painter Master, Certified Painter Instructor and long-standing member of the Corel Painter Advisory Board.
I discovered Corel Painter twenty years ago, and have since enjoyed creating digital images. I believe traditional art principles can be applied digitally to produce artwork that defies distinction.
With my traditional art background and state-of-the-art skills, I have been able to bridge two worlds and teach students how to apply traditional painting techniques to the digital canvas working with Painter. I believe everyone can draw and paint, but they need to learn how to progress. I saw that need within the digital art community and I founded the Digital Art Academy in 2007 to help students achieve their artistic goals.
