Ben Hoole, Digital Artist

Australian Wall Art Prints was created by Queensland creative Ben Hoole. Ben has been a keen multi-discipline artist for most of his life, and art has been pivotal in his professional life for over 20 years.

For decades, Ben has spent the majority of his working hours engaged in graphic, web and product design, and, for the past several years, he has worked fulltime as a mixed modality digital artist. Despite a 20+ year management education (he holds an undergraduate degree in commerce, a Master's degree in business administration and a Master's degree in professional education and training), Ben long-ago shunned the corporate world in favour of a career as an independent artisan.

Ben works with a wide variety of digital 2d and 3d tools and techniques, including (among others) Lightwave 3d, Zbrush (digital sculpting), Corel Draw suite (graphic design), Corel Painter and Clip Studio Paint (digital painting) and Affinity Photo/ Designer (graphic design, digital painting). He has also always had a keen professional interest in photography and literature.

Ben is a long-time martial artist and natural bodybuilder and has, for decades, studied heavily in the areas of consciousness, hypnosis, meditation and mindfulness (with areas of interest that include the effects of hypnotic/ mindfulness training on creativity and human performance).

Ben lives in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia, with his wife and daughter (both also artists and martial artists). He also owns and operates a stock CG image library at https://stockCGimages.com.
