My name is Tina Oloyede, I am a self-taught fractal artist with twenty years' experience in this still relatively undiscovered and, to many, rather strange and unconventional field of visual art. I am currently based in Leicester, UK and south-west France and have lived all over the UK, including Kent, London, Glasgow, Lincolnshire and Shropshire.
I became interested in fractals after retiring as a GP in 2000 when my children were very young, at a time when the internet was in its infancy and home computers very basic.
Fractal art, coupled with web design, has been a passionate creative past-time ever since. My earliest influences were artists such as Janet Parke, Samuel Monnier, Klaus-Peter Kubik and Andreas Lober, to name but a few.
The development of modern, powerful computer technology has hugely increased both the technical and artistic sophistication of fractal art, enabling me to continue to develop my creativity and learn new skills and techniques.
The software I mostly use (Ultra Fractal) allows the rendering of very large, high-resolution digital image files from which professional-quality prints can be made. Please contact me with enquiries regarding ordering prints or licensing my art.
While fractal art is predominantly a leisure activity for me, I have been fortunate enough to have my work recognised internationally, being show-cased on-line and published in various books, magazines and calendars and I have exhibited my art on a few occasions over the years.
