My first computer was an Apple IIe. I was a kid in the 1980s when my parents got it for me and my younger sister. We kept the computer in the bedroom that my sister and I shared.
I spent a lot of time on that computer. I played games like The Oregon Trail and Math Blaster. I also made digital art using a programming language by Turtle Graphics called Logo.
The Math Blaster game really fueled my love of math. I went on to get a bachelor’s degree in mathematics with a minor in computer science when I graduated from college. Also, having a computer at such a young age has helped me to be skilled at using computers and electronics in my adulthood.
I’m glad I got started making art on a computer as a child, because I use computers, phones, and tablets to make art these days. I’ve had a lot of practice, and, while I also have made traditional art in the past, my main obsession in my mid 40s is using computers and other electronics to make digital art, write poetry, and make music.
Incidentally. I apologize for neglecting my blog. I hope to take better care of it in the future and stay in better touch with my blogging friends.
I've been making art since I was a child in the 1980s. I started with traditional media. Then, I began to make digital art on the family's Apple IIe computer in the early 80s. Between 1995 and 1996, when I was a senior in high school, I was the art club president.
In 2005, I started to make fractals. In 2021, I began making other digital art forms as an adult.
I write music and improvise every now and then. I've been doing this since I first played a guitar and piano when I was a child. I also like to make loops and beats.
I wrote a few haiku and senryu poems when I was younger. Unfortunately, I didn't save them. On May 30, 2022, I started to write them frequently and have been saving them in multiple places. I've also written some haibun and some flash memoirs. I hope to learn more about writing poetry and flash and microfiction as time passes. My goal with this website is to publish my art, fractals, poetry, music, and writing. I will also share other images, poetry, or writings that are in the public domain.
My writings, poetry, fractals, music, and art are copyrighted by me and may not be used in any way without my written permission.
