I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA and I am currently a senior in High School. I have been creating abstract images using a Windows PC and Adobe PhotoShop for about two years. I usually create an image completely from scratch, but I have recently experimented with using certain pictures (such as photos of the human brain) as an opening outline and texture to my work. I refer to my abstract style as “Digital Organics” because even though my images are usually completely computerized, they have an organic look and feel that can occasionally be mistaken for things that might be found under a microscope or in space. Inspirations include Trent Reznor, H.R. Giger, and David Lynch (just to name a few).
