To make these mandalas, I scan my paintings and photobased work into the computer. I then begin to work them into the final image using software programs like Photoshop, Illustrator and Painter. The computer has become yet another tool an artist can use to express visual language.
Another example from my mandala series. This began with a large painting on wood panel.
Living on Hornby Island, it can be hard to avoid the landscape. I tend to abstract it rather than paint it representationally.
Both of these paintings are large format on wood panel.
An example of my photobased work.
