Dale thank you so much for allowing me to talk with you about your art. I was browsing through your Gallery yesterday I am surprised and delighted at the range of genre in your work. May I compliment you on your professional approach to your work, I sense that you enjoy creating whimsical, and fantasy images and there is a sense of humor that you often weave into your work.
Thank you so much Kaylene ... I am both delighted and honored that you have invited me to share my “artself” with you.
Could you tell us what inspires your art work?
So many different things inspire me. Colour, shape, texture, contrast, words, poetry, life experiences, emotions and music are just a few I can think of right now.
Do you have a favorite software and if so what features do you like?
I use PSCS5 Extended for all my work, am completely self-taught and love that there is always new stuff to learn and discover in Photoshop. When I discovered Gradients I thought I had found my way to digi heaven!
Do you have any preferred technique that you would like to share with us? Also do you have a favorite medium other than digital art?
Being a “grunge girl” I tend to go for a slightly shabby look and for me this generally means layers and layers of textures and color to get the shabby look that I want. Coupled with Blending Modes, layering is always so exciting because more often than not one has “happy accidents” which is so cool! (and you feel very clever too! Lol)
Lastly, something about yourself. How long have you been Digital Artist, and how did you begin your journey?
I cut my teeth in PSCS2 in 2010 just after my daughter and her family left South Africa to start a new life in Queensland, Australia. I was heartbroken and needed something to take my mind off things.
Having always loved art and crafty stuff I soon realized the potential to expand my creativity as a digi artist.
I started off with Tangie Baxter’s Art Journal Caravan and it took me 6 months to pluck up the courage to post my very first digi piece in the AJC gallery! I have not looked back and this is mostly thanks to all the amazing encouragement that the digi world has given me. I have made the most wonderful friends and I am grateful to be part of so many warm and friendly digi art communities.
Vincent van Gogh has always been a favorite...maybe it is his seemingly “messy” style that attracts me. His tragic story touches my heart.
Digital Artists who constantly inspire me are Catrin Welz-Stein, Christian Schloe, Marsha Jorgensen, Trudi Sissons, Tracey Macleod, Maggie Taylor and Catrin Arno to name but a few.
I do not really have one favorite piece of art, but I am attracted to beautiful colors!
Do you have a web/blog site?
I do not have a web/blog site. It is on my to do list!
