"I would describe myself as a mixed media / digital artist my name is Zita Som "Zee" and I was born in Budapest, Hungary in the year 1979. Being self-taught with little awareness or concern for the "rules", I find myself with a natural tendency to break them.
I started right after the birth of my first baby (now I have two gorgeous munchkins). I didn't want to spend a single day missing all those precious moments, so I used my creativity and love for art and began creating unique illustrations and prints. After a full career in supply chain and business ownership and a late start in art, I feel the freedom of being an artist without fear or urgency of creating under conventional standards. Experimenting with acrylic paints, inks, and various mediums and tools, I sometimes find myself with a finished painting and no clear memory of the individual steps taken on the way.
Acrylic and Watercolour had always been my choice of media to reach the outer world, however now fast computing capabilities provide the tools to render my vibrant inner world. I absolutely love technology and love creating art with an edge.
My style; I'd call it pop art, or mixed media implemented with the benefit of digital technology. I enjoy a freestyle approach to the use of media; I orchestrate the visual components using a variety of techniques. By scanning painted and drawn media into pixels, I manipulate and integrate the imagery with digital painting.
