“If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.”
I make fractals and other digital art for therapeutic purposes to help me deal with multiple sclerosis and depression. I like to imagine that I'm a strong person that can accept and handle what life throws my way. Living with both MS and depression is not easy and is certainly an obstacle that is difficult to overcome.
I believe using art for therapy is something that should not be underestimated. I'm not skilled at making forms of art outside the realm of fractals, so I spend my creative energy on making fractals. I've been making them since 2005. I started using a software called Apophysis. I've since branched out to other software, such as Ultra Fractal, Jux, JWildfire, Fractal Explorer, Mind-Boggling Fractals, Chaoscope, Frax, Mandelbulb3D, and Mandelbulber. There are of course many other software programs available for making fractals and I will soon make a post about what fractal software is available for people to use. Some cost money, but many of them are free.
I hope you enjoy the fractals I've made and posted on this website. I put my heart into making them and they serve a purpose for me far beyond aesthetics.
