John Hamsher, Joplin, Missouri Member Since September 2008 Artist Statement I am 52 years young and reside in the great state of Missouri. I am an avid photographer and digital artist. I enjoy manipulating photographic images, as well as making my digital art. I am presently using Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006 for all my art. But in the past have used several digital programs. I am a self taught artist who feels very strongly that a person can teach ones self. I have eight years experience in digital medium art. I work several hours a day trying to perfect my art work. I love art in all forms. But seem to be best at present in the Abstract area. I wish to thank you for taking the time from your busy life to sit back, relax, and look at my art. I hope that you find meaning in my work. And purchase something for yourself, or that special someone. Thanks for stopping in, looking, and purchasing my art. Sincerely, John Hamsher or HipHamp Art.
