About Mary Clanahan
Hi, my name is Mary, I created this website and the fine digital art within. I have always been an artist. I like to be creative no matter what tools are on hand. Recently, I have been called a new media artist. Digital art is created with computer software but new media art is an umbrella term. Wiki defines new media art as a genre that encompasses artworks created with new media technologies, including digital art, computer graphics, computer animation, virtual art, Internet art, interactive art, video games, computer robotics, and art as biotechnology. I am honored to be a digital artist and a new media artist but I have a long way to go to learn all I must to create art as biotechnology 🙂
There is a short list of things in the world of conventional art that I can do, and I do those things pretty well. I can create sculpture, paint on canvas or barn-wood or anything else you throw at me.. I have a knack for taking great photographs though I tend to credit my camera Kodak Bob..
Lately, my art has been an extension of the time I spend with my computer. Digital art is limitless and no matter what you do, the color mauve will only enter the scenario when chosen. I have enjoyed learning how to manipulate the software into art and will figure out soon how to print.
My favorite computer software editor tools right now are PicMonkey, Corel and Adobe. Corel Paintshop Pro is my best friend when it comes to preparing images for print. To create my art, I like to use a free online photo editor called PicMonkey. Click the ‘my art tools’ link just below for an article about the ‘best art software 2014-15’.
City art is my favorite art to make. Yes, admittedly, I say that about all art. City art is a newer adventure, so I give it extra points. Inspired by my love for the relationship between a great city and it’s people, my cityscape series has been a project of love. I will commit to this love affair as long as I am able. Check out my city art series in the City Art Gallery. You can also buy city art prints from my secure FAA art store.
Portrait Art Gallery
Portrait Art series began in early 2014. Some I create as fan-art because I am truly a fan. I choose only those subjects who touch my heart in some way. I hope you dig these, I really loved making them. The series has grown with my newest love, pattern portraits. Check those out in the Portrait Art Gallery.
Layer Art is art that is layered with colors and shapes giving a topography look to the art. I use Corel Paintshop Pro X7 to create my layer art. I used a combination of topography settings to achieve a certain look when applied to the appropriate layout. It’s a difficult series to accomplish and I am proud of the result. The link below leads to Layer Art Gallery, visit FAA for layer art prints.
