David has been creating Fractal Art since 1999 and has won international awards - fractal art is art produced using mathematics, it's a specific form of algorithmic art. Fractal Art is based on Fractal Geometry which is very new in Maths terms being from the 1970s. Since 2010 he has also been creating art from straight photography and digital manipulation.

My first artistic creations were fractals as my original job was as a computer programmer. Discovering fractals was a revelation that showed me that even maths geeks can be artistic. After doing fractals for a couple of years I acquired my first digital camera and have found I enjoy working with digital photography as much as with fractals.
My biggest goals are to popularise fractals and fractal geometry and show others who don't think they can be artistic that anything's possible when you find the correct medium and for those who are artistic but have no interest in math that math itself can be used to produce amazing art - through fractals and other algorithmic methods.
