I think that I have discovered a graphic artist in myself.

I have always been interested in pictures and art.  My house walls are covered in other people’s art that I have acquired over the years!

Also, when I was much younger, I used to enjoy drawing but I gave it up as it did not seem to have much income earning potential as a skill.

In working with Photoshop, I have discovered that I have a passion for working with photographs.

Here are a few examples of pictures taken of my grandchildren and how I have changed them in Photoshop using a combination of Photoshop actions and touching up with Photoshop tools:

Apart from creating a family calendar for Christmas, and using these skills to create graphics for my products, I’m not sure where I am going with these skills!  All I know is that I enjoy the technical and artistic challenge of working with graphics like this.

If you have any suggestions as to how I can make a living from doing this I would be very grateful.

Am I graphic artist?  I don’t know but all I know is that I really love working with photographs like this – the act of creating something nice is very satisfying.
