Journey by Ajai


Art and the creative process have been a part of my life since  the beginning. Raised as the only child of a “starving artist” from a long line of artists and artisans, the fear of starvation created a fear of art and I hesitated to  embrace my creative side until I was in my late 30s. My fear of art as a means of survival lead me to a diverse education and crazy career path. From truck driving to television engineer… and from theology to Journalism and logistics, I learned anything and everything I thought I needed to at the time.  I was eventually awarded a couple pieces of paper that say I’m educated in Computer Imaging with a BFA from Metropolitan State University of Denver  with a minor in Sculpture and a Masters Degree from the University of Denver in Digital Media Studies.

I love digital media but was intrigued by the  tactile application of many of my art classes and especially by the feel and flow of paint, so I  embarked on a journey thru the world of pigment for a more sensual and expressive experience.  I often prefer paint, but will pick up whatever medium I feel I need to accomplish my mission of creating.

Driven by a desire to reach my full potential in art and the creative process, I continually strive to perfect  my craft and to help others do the same.  If I’m not making stuff, I’m teaching others how to make stuff…If you want to learn more about who I am and what I’m really about, check out my living blog at
