About Stan Ragets
I have a background in computer programming and seek to blend the technical and artistic sides of fractals together. My work encompasses a wide range of both 2 and 3 dimensional realms. In time, I hope to make fractal artwork a household name. Over the years, I have developed several original fractal styles. As current technology continues to change, I constantly push forward to discover and develop new styles and techniques. My artwork involves custom parameters programmed specifically by me. Due to the use of a random chaos engine, some of the fractals are so unique that they can only be produced one time. It would be impossible to reproduce them exactly.
My artwork has been shown in several galleries throughout the USA. My art is also featured in jewelry in New Zealand and Australia and on Ed Roman’s guitars.
I have a large share in the online fractal community working to enhance others’ talent and appreciation of this beautiful art form. I continue to provide both training and tutorials to many who wish to learn the art.

Art is something that I’ve always enjoyed from the creative process all the way to seeing the final results. I strive to create artwork that you can get lost in, pieces that can be viewed over and over again, always finding something new. I want to create engaging artwork that pulls you into the image.
My computer programming background allows me to design my own custom parameters that give me a unique edge among fractal artists. I constantly strive to push the limits of current technology and am always learning as new developments take place. As technology grows, so do I as an artist.
