I use Studio Artist for fun and profit to create digital paintings from my photos.
I am a retired Fire Fighter. Oil painting and watercolor has always been a big part of my life. I enjoy photography and digital painting. I now use Studio Artist and PS exclusively to create my artwork. I live in the wine country in Southern Ontario Canada not far from Niagara Falls.
