John Derry is a pioneer in the field of digital painting and was one of the original creators of Corel® Painter™, long before Corel owned the product. Since 1985, he has leveraged his background in drawing and painting to advance the look and experience of traditional art-making tools on the computer. John received a master’s degree in painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art, and co-patented two inventions relating to expressive digital mark-making. John is a regular contributor to AfterCapture Magazine, Rangefinder’s publication focusing on photographic post-production work. He teaches expressive photographic interpretation workshops in the U.S. and abroad. John is Corel’s Painter Ambassador-at-Large, and is a practicing artist and photographer. John can be found online at www.pixlart.com.
There is no one who knows Painter better than John, and we’re very proud to include his training in our library!
