Exploring digital art

New inspiration followed as soon as I had sold the stock library. My attention was drawn to a magazine about digital art created in Illustrator, Photoshop and other software programmes. Amazing things you can make on the computer and instantly I thought: "I want to do that too!" Over the last three years I have learnt so much about the digital world, pictures and painting and I realise that I can combine all of that.

Even before the transfer of the library, I got really inspired by a personal project involving my mum which I initiated. I thoroughly enjoyed the creative process and I'm now eagerly waiting for the result. Soon I will be able to show it here...

The moment I had finished this project, I started experimenting with exercises from the magazine.
This is my first attempt and I'm sure more will follow because I love it!

The start of a new beginning...

Since I posted my last article here, many positive things happened and I now have found the time to share it with you!

As soon as I had decided to stop with the stock library I received an offer from one of the biggest independent libraries in the image industry, Photoshot. They wanted to continue what I had created so PictureNature didn't have to stop after all! I felt quite proud that our collection was chosen to be among the other strong brands they had purchased in the past. After a few visits to London, some negotiation and a visit to my solicitor, it was all formalised end of March. At the moment all of our 13,000 images are being transferred.

From now on I will be one of the contributors and can focus my time on the creative process again. Letting go of something I had visualised but not able to realise, has created a new oppportunity which I couldn't have imagined beforehand! It really opened my eyes. The whole process has given me more insight in how to deal with hurdles in life.
