Nature makes art, and humans make art. There is art in the patterns of clouds overhead, in the shape of the branches of the trees, in the dry gray texture of the wooden walls on a weathered barn, and in the gleaming silver metal of a car engine. It is in the bouquet of a perfect wine, in the flavor of warm cherry pie with cold vanilla ice cream, in the pleasing asymmetry in a building’s architecture, in the design of spacecraft, and in the lines of a dramatic red dress. Art is on canvas, on the computer screen, and on the pages of a well-worn book.
I am an artist and an engineer. I love to create things. I like using and making tools. I love using technology to solve problems and make beautiful things. I love seeing what others have done using their own imaginations and tools. I love the Steampunk era, when machinery and architecture were intended to be beautiful as well as functional. I love knowing that others share my love for art and technology and appreciate the works I make.
Putting all these together: My goal for High Tech Art is to offer art created using, or suggesting, advanced technology.
I graduated from Michigan Technological University in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. Since then, I have worked as a software engineer, technical writer, computer tutor, feng shui consultant, professional organizer, artist, and business writing instructor.
