"While I didn't want the technology to overwhelm me, I felt impelled to try out certain things that were difficult and time-consuming to implement manually on the canvas. Certain textures for instance, that would have been impossible to execute with a paintbrush, became instantly possible. And even though I am very daring with colours, I found that the computer encouraged me to experiment with bolder, more innovative colours. Using computers is not a short-cut to art. Instead it offers more choices, more deliberations. In fact once I became comfortable with the computer, I knew I could create better work with the help of this technology than on my own."
