The mission of Digital Thangka is to offer the global community thangka images, firmly rooted in Tibetan painting traditions and Buddhist teachings, but drawn with the perfection of the Digital Age.
I have been drawing digital since 2008. As a former graphic designer, I already was familiar with using computers in art. Using them for drawing traditional thangkas started when I met my drawing teacher Andy Weber, who has been drawing thangkas and teaching this ancient art form for over 30 years.
Using traditional grids and drawing processes, I have set out on a journey to discover the challenges and possibilities of weaving Tibetan tradition with modern technology.
