Paul Mcdonald, Baltimore Member Since July 2008 Artist Statement Paul Anthony McDonald is a freelance artist from Maryland. Over the years, Paul has studied different types of art media and has merged all of his knowledge in order to create unique pieces that not only tell a story but speak to the soul. Paul states that his artwork is a visual representation of his emotions combined with his creative interpretation of beauty. Paul’s latest pieces were mostly created using computer art, which he finds both relaxing and meditative. Since Paul was very young, he always loved drawing and painting but never imagined that his passion for art would eventually become his profession. His studies have enabled him to expand his artistic abilities to painting, computer art design, and sketching. Paul’s artwork can be simple or extremely detailed and complex, offering many levels of enjoyment for his viewers. Some of his artwork can take months, while others can take a few days to complete depending of the subject matter. He cleverly interplay light, texture, color to reflect his knowledge of fundamentals of drawing.
