Local artists: Day Serianni
Day enjoys combining digital photography with pixel "handpainting" in her striking pictures...
"I have been drawing and painting most of my life. In 1995 I went back to university and graduated in 1998 with a BA in fine art and a BS in environmental science.
My canvas paintings are usually large, done in oils... with deep, rich colours. The subjects range from "macro" plantlife and endangered species of wildlife to impressionist style landscapes and portraits.
I was introduced to Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop a few years ago and have been "addicted" ever since! I experimented with graphics programs and I "paint" using pixels in the the same way I would use a paint brush on canvas.
I enjoy combining digital photography with pixel "handpainting". Some of my macro pieces are first photographed and then transformed once I get them on my computer. They must be viewed at full size to appreciate the added hidden features.
My love of music led me to begin doing CD covers and album cover design… the latest work was for a band called Buffalo, from Accrington, from there I began doing band web banners, t-shirt design, and advertising logos.
My work was chosen to be part of the BT & Thomas Dolby North American Tour 2006. 20 of my digital art pieces were used as the back drop during the Norfolk VA, Alexandria VA, and Baltimore MD shows. It is also showcased on The Common Ground Art Gallery, an Enviromental Organization's website that features "environmental" artists from around the world. http://www.commonground2008.com/gallery/index.html"
