Painting and creating art has been my passion my entire life. I have worked in many different mediums and if you visit my website you can see some examples. I'm trying to emulate the great illuminary atist by the name of Frederic Edwin Church who used a lot of light and detail as one of the 'Hudson River' painters. Undoubtedly, Maxfield Parrish has had an impact on my art as one of my visitors pointed out in my painting called 'Memories'. I love a lot of Parrish's paintings. My main subjects are science fiction, space, marine, beautiful women, cowboys, landscapes, fractal abstract, horse, unicorns, pegasi and Egyptian.
Many of my fine art paintings have been sold and are now in private collections throughout the USA. My digital art is used in prints for private collections and also used in advertisement, book covers, CD covers and computer games all over the world.
Beginning in late 2003, I began dabbling in digital art and found it very much to my liking and have produced over 1000+ digital paintings since then. I'm always trying to improve my work in an ongoing process.
I'm also continuing to work in oil painting. Some of my paintings are for sale as mentioned on this website.
Hope you enjoy my work and visit my gallery often to see my new paintings.
Just to let you know, I am also known on the Internet by the tradename of 'Coreycupcake' and also 'Catmando'.
