Shortly after I graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2012, I discovered a new medium--mobile digital art. Since then I have focused on combining my traditional art making skills with the evolving technology of mobile digital devices.
I started with drawing applications using my iPad mini as my paper and canvas and used my fingers as my pencil, charcoal and paint. Then I scaled up with the 8" iPad and capacitive (non- electronic) stylus. I currently use Apple technology-- the iPad Pro and Bluetooth enabled Pencil along with a variety of art applications which are optimized for mobile digital tools. I love using all of these devices! No set up, no clean up or $20.00 tubes of paint. I can carry my virtual studio in my handbag and take it with me across the deserts of the Southwest or way down east to Maine. All I have to do is figure out how to use the software. This process reminds me on a daily basis that I was not born digital.
