Ben Wilson grew up in Michigan, served as a representative for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Taiwan, and currently lives in Southeast Idaho. Using a watercolor style, and a digital medium Ben seeks to lift and inspire others. His art combines his love of the Savior’s restored gospel, the beauty of God’s creations, and his talent for technology.

I have always liked zoos and aviaries, especially ones highlighting colorful North American birds. Sadly, I spent most of my life merely wishing that I could see these beautiful creatures in the wild. It wasn’t until I took the initiative to learn about them first that I began to find them everywhere, even in my own front yard! I couldn’t see them until I was prepared to see them. This obviously comes out in many of my pieces, but more than that I hope that my work conveys the lesson I learned. There are blessings and joy in our lives that we might miss if we aren’t ready.

Ethical Use of AI-Generated Art

As an artist with a deep appreciation for both traditional and AI-assisted art forms, I believe in the responsible and ethical use of AI-generated art in my creative process.

Throughout my artistic journey, I have honed my skills in digital art over many years, predating the emergence of AI-generated art. Today, I incorporate AI-generated art as a valuable tool in my creative arsenal. However, I want to assure my audience and fellow artists of my unwavering commitment to ethical art practices.

1. Originality and Artistic Integrity:

I pledge not to release any AI-generated art under my name without introducing meaningful artistic changes. Every artwork I present to the world represents my unique artistic vision and personal touch, even when AI is part of the creative process.

2. Verifying AI-Generated Art:

Before using AI-generated art as reference material, I rigorously perform reverse image searches to verify the originality of the generated images. This ensures that I respect the rights of fellow artists and maintain the highest standards of artistic integrity.

3. Respect for the Art Community:

I hold immense respect for the entire art community, from traditional artists to AI artists and everyone in between. My goal is to foster a collaborative and ethical environment where creativity flourishes, and artists' rights are upheld.

I believe that AI is a tool that can enhance the creative process while preserving the essence of human creativity. By adhering to these principles, I aim to contribute positively to the evolving landscape of art and technology.

Thank you for joining me on this artistic journey, where innovation and ethics go hand in hand.
