Photo to Art Conversion
PhotoArtCanvas.co.za is a side business of mine which is primarily a service of manipulating photos into digital art, and printing the resulting artwork onto actual canvas.
The photo you provide can be anything – a wedding photo, a pic of your child or animal, a selfie you particularly like, a holiday photo, or even some stock photo you want edited. You might want an old black and white photo colourised, several photos shopped* into one, or just a little colour correction and some beautiful text added. Whatever it is, I can do it. You can see some examples and start the ordering process here:

* When I use the term ‘shopped’, I’m not literally talking about Adobe PhotoShop. With the introduction of Creative Cloud, Adobe has sadly priced their software out of the International market by forcing people to rent it. It is no longer possible to buy Adobe Photoshop outright. If, like most of us in south Africa, you aren’t earning good dollars, pounds, or euros, those dollars per month charged for Creative Cloud are stupidly ridiculous. Most Africans, and Asians just pirate Adobe software, but instead I use something called Affinity Photo which is almost as good, getting better all the time, and is a crapton more affordable.
Canvas Art Print Shop
I’ve slowly been adding original digital art to my shop page for people to buy for display in their home, office or holiday rentals. I may start adding my sketches here too, or I may close the shop and upload the artwork to a more established art print vendor. I haven’t made my mind up about this yet, but in the meantime, you can have a look at the work I’ve created so far here:
