Artwork has always been an integral part of my life. From a young age I was doodling and sculpting, and I can say without a doubt, I enjoy it as much now as I did then.
I have some formal education, and am very grateful for my artistic training, especially the many great teachers I've had. I received a Bachelors in Computer Graphics and Interactive Media from the University of Dubuque, Iowa. There I explored the process of creating video game assets and the many different software packages that aid artists in that production pipeline. I also dabbled in typography, video and photo editing, and even some particle and physics simulations for special effects. However, my primary artistic training took place at the Watts Atelier of the Arts.
There I cultivated my deep love for traditional media in the forms of charcoal and graphite drawing as well as oil painting. I studied a broad list of subjects there, ranging from pure academic anatomy, animal artwork, landscape, composition, illustration, storytelling and many others. Most importantly I learned the importance of artwork as a daily practice and discipline.
I enjoy visual creativity in many forms, and consider myself a mixed-media artist, having explored both 2d and 3d digital art for entertainment design. I love working with both digital and physical media and the incredible variety that can come from a mixed workflow. I'm excited about technology and its role in the creative world, and I'm looking forward to many more years of exploration. If you're interested, you can see more of my work at lucaskremerart.com.
