Lewis Rose – Digital Artist

My name is Lewis Rose; I’m a 25-year-old Birmingham based Digital Artist, with a BA Honours in Visual Arts. I live with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. As with every aspect of my life, I’ve had to adapt my artistic endeavours around the worsening progression of my condition. As I started to become physically unable to work with traditional techniques, I eventually concentrated my efforts in digital mediums. My discovery of Digital Art developed via an initial interest in digital photography during a foundation Diploma in Art. Since then I’ve compiled a range of photographs, however again due to my physical restraints this has now also become a difficult medium to work in. I don’t work with any specific concepts; I simply enjoy the therapeutic quality the creative process brings. I do my thinking in other areas so the art tends to be an escape.
