Rachael Alt

I consider myself a pixel manipulator. I specialize in digital art since I wasn’t high school. That was 30 years ago when I began my love of computer graphics.

I consider myself a pixel manipulator. I specialize in digital art since I wasn’t high school. That was 30 years ago when I began my love of computer graphics.The apps on the android play store are the main apps I use. My objective has been to produce new media using generative new media apps. I like to push the limits of the app and create things that people aren’t doing yet I guess you could say that would be influencing. I find it relaxing and calming and very exciting.
