Mia Robinson, Washington DC Member Since April 2010 Artist Statement I am a fine artist with a background in more traditional media including charcoal, oils and pastels. In 2008, I purchased a 2nd generation iPhone 3G. One of the first apps I downloaded was an art app called Brushes. At the time, I had never used a digital medium to create artwork, NOR did I know that software had been developed to a point where it could simulate more traditional art mediums. This revelation changed my life as an artist.
For the past two years, I have been using just my finger and iPhone to create art. Recently, I purchased an Axiotron Modbook (modified Macbook Pro with Wacom Tablet) to work on a larger scale. I’ve come to rely on these very convenient and handy mediums not just as mobile sketchbooks, but also as a means to create fine art paintings.
I have worked alongside digital and traditional artists from all backgrounds (and locations) to explore tablet art (iPhone/Touch, iPad, and modbook) as a legitimate art tool for creating printable artwork. The art I showcase on this site is a result of this ongoing dialogue.
I believe that tablet technology not only is a legitimate art tool, but it is also offers the convenience of mobility and accessibility to the artist. It is my goal, through this site, to encourage those seeking a convenient and viable art medium, to consider the digital medium as an option for creating fine works of art.
