As they say, art is a form of personal expression. This website is able to offer you several options on what background material and size you would like the artist's work to be printed. However here, I am also offering you the opportunity to personalize even further the artwork you choose by providing the option of formats the artwork could take. What you see here doesn't necessarily mean it's what you have to get.
For example: you might wish one of my COLOURFUL INDIVIDUALS photographs as: BLACK AND WHITE (plain, textured or embossed); SEPIA (plain or embossed); PAINTED (with or without texture) or just have the original EMBOSSED; or you could go even further and have one made into something more digitally manipulated as in my INDIVIDUALS OF DIFFERENT SHAPES Gallery ... or even more abstract as in my COLOUR COMPOSITION OF NATURE Gallery. You might favour one of my mixed media PORTRAITS or DRAWINGS in a different colour. Perhaps you would like to select several items to be made into a collage or have a collage broken down into individual pieces. You may wish an item to be flipped horizontally or vertically or the name of your final decision to be printed on it. I have tried to design the Galleries so they can all be mixed and matched for any particular artistic statement you might wish to make. So, this website is about you and what you like ... I'm just providing pieces and abilities I have to help you do that.
If you see an item in any one of my Galleries and would like to see it in the format of another, or even a format I haven't tried yet ... don't hesitate to drop me a line. I would be more than happy to help make the artwork you choose fit YOUR personal expression!
I know ... I'm supposed to have a biography in this space - so, here's a little about me ...
DRAWING: A friend drew a portrait for me in the late 1970's ... so I thought I would give it a try and have been drawing pencil portraits since for myself, family and friends. Some have been submitted to magazines. April 2012 marked my first attempts drawing animals with colour pencil; June 2013 was my first attempt with cars in black and white pencil; September 2013, flowers; October 2014 my first attempt with soft pastels; and February 2016 painting with watercolours.
PHOTOGRAPHY: I began just a few years ago to take photographs of the beauty in my own backyard.
PAINTINGS, DIGITAL ART and MIXED MEDIA: Since I began uploading those photographs and drawings to sell here, I've begun to mess around with them on the computer ... just for something different.
THE FUTURE: I'm hoping to expand my artistic ability to more genres as time passes. For the present, all skills which have brought me to this point pertaining to what you see on this website are still evolving ... because they are all self-taught.
I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen. May whatever you purchase be a good representation of you! And if your artistic expression changes, please allow me to help you convey it with another piece at that time. Thanks again for your visits and your purchases! ...J. McCombie
