artist- Carlton Stout
Currently I enjoy digital art, graphic design, and fine art. I work in web design and various digital media.
My passion is visual 2D art, digital or traditional. I prefer the look of traditional media and work with digital tools. I pioneered techniques and methods that blends traditional media with digital production to produce 2D fine art. I've enjoyed having works sold internationally and hung in local galleries. I now focus on the pleasures of producing art as opposed to doldrums of marketing and producing art products so that means I don't care if my art is a commodity or suitable for galleries. I make art because I must.
I welcome collaborations with other artists and especially like inspiring new artists or offering workshop training in becoming more creative and using digital painting apps for visual creativity.
Feel free to contact me if you find something here interesting.
Professional Experience & Degrees
I have an Associates of Arts and a Certificate Degree of Digital Arts.
I've worked as a Color & Image Technician for Ma'alea Press and Hilo Art Center between 2007-2014 producing color corrected fine art giclees and image refinements.
My skill sets range from traditional media arts, digital painting, drafting, Photoshop Mastery, photography, virtual imaging, photographic restoration & manipulation, fine art scanning & photography, image creations, logo design, print production, videography and editing, animation, programming, and web design.
I began to advance my art and digital computer skills in 2006 and continue to hone and explore my style and passion within the digital fine art arena. I enjoy the clean and versatile tools of digital media but I honor the traditional media for its aesthetics and spirit, therefore I try to create works that honor both.
