My Journey from Photo Manipulation to Ai Art prompt crafting
My artistic journey began in high school and university, where I delved into the fascinating realm of photo manipulation and digital collage. These techniques allowed me to explore my creativity and transform ordinary images into something new and artistic. Simultaneously, my passion for nature photography blossomed.
I remember how I used photoshop and took all those images and blended them by using brushes and changing their colors . The below creations were inspired by fairytales.

My first AI creations
In October 2022, while on maternity leave, my artistic horizons expanded once again with the discovery of AI art. Through a YouTube channel, I was introduced to the groundbreaking capabilities of Dall-E, a text-to-image AI tool. Intrigued by its potential, I experimented with Dall-E, generating a variety of images from my imagination.
Shortly after, I stumbled upon FreewayML, an AI art generator in its alpha testing phase. Intrigued by the promise of free access for a limited time, I eagerly signed up and dove headfirst into this new creative playground. With FreewayML, I created thousands of images, each more captivating and imaginative than the last. The sheer diversity and originality of these AI-generated artworks were truly astounding.
As the free trial period drew to a close, I decided to explore other AI art tools. Midjourney, with its newly released version 4, caught my attention. I was immediately captivated by its sophisticated capabilities and the sheer range of artistic styles it could emulate.
Early Midjourney Images
With Midjourney, I continued my exploration of AI art, expanding my creative horizons and pushing the boundaries of my imagination. The AI’s ability to interpret my prompts and generate images that matched my vision was nothing short of remarkable. I found myself creating surreal scenes, fairytale inspired images, and cute animals that far exceeded my previous expectations.
Throughout my journey with AI art, I’ve discovered that it’s not about replacing the traditional artist’s role but rather complementing it. AI tools offer a unique perspective and a wealth of creative possibilities, allowing artists to explore new avenues of expression and push the boundaries of their craft.
AI art has not only enriched my creative process but also sparked a newfound appreciation for the power of technology. The ability to collaborate with an AI to create art that is both imaginative and technically impressive is truly remarkable.
As I continue my exploration of AI art, I’m excited to see what the future holds for this rapidly evolving field. I believe that AI has the potential to revolutionize the way we create and experience art, and I’m eager to be a part of this transformative journey.
