I was drawn to illustration as a small child.  I showed aptitude for drawing and painting and was fortunate that my parents encouraged my creative side.  I started formal lessons in illustration when I was 12.  At 16 I started studying various painting techniques.  Although I enjoy working in color I prefer the simplicity of black and shades of gray. 

Illustration is meditative for me and I enjoy the process of planning an illustration and then slowly building the lines and shading until a recognizable image is visible.  I am a photo-realist and have done extensive study of photo-realist masters such as Hajime Sorayama and Yigal Ozeri. 

I was an early adopter of computerized illustration.  I got involved in the Internet Revolution early (1994).  From this point forward the majority of my efforts have been computer based.  I still try to do as many hand-drawn illustrations as possible.  I use Wacom digital tablets for digital illustrations and am a graduate of Adobe's Master Classes for Photoshop and Illustrator. 

Iíve designed (literally) hundreds of websites for companies and individuals across the globe.  I've developed brands, relaunched brands, and provided supporting graphic materials for marketing to over 120 different companies. 

I accept commission illustration work and I am always ready to help you develop the right visual message or graphic to support your branding and marketing efforts.
