These tutorials in image manipulation are intended to give you an idea of how I create my art. I show you the image I started with and some of the key steps in the transformation of the image. Sometimes the transformation is radical, and sometimes it is subtle. I hope this gives you some appreciation for the kind of work that goes into each of my images. Feel free to email me with questions or comments!

I will be adding to this page from time to time, so keep checking back!
