Istarted my career as a graphic designer and illustrator but gravitated towards fine art as my experimentation in color drifted outside the gamut possible with traditional printing techniques. Early illustration lessons still influences my art as each work has a simple focus and studied use of color and light to direct attention to the subject of the piece.
When painting with acrylic, I believe that the canvas is where the true color mixing begins. The colors on my palette are therefore loosely folded together before being applied. Digital pieces are created using the same principles behind my paintings, even when working with 3d objects.
The subject matter itself is often chosen for humor, expressed either as visual irony or lighthearted observation, and as an award winning and internationally collected artist, it is my sincerest hope to that there might be something here that brightens your home or office as well.
Art is a joy. I love discovering something new or giving the viewer an excuse to smile (not always in the same painting, but most of the time I get it right).
I render fine art with humor and whimsy (most of the time). When working traditionally, I almost exclusively paint in acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas but have been known to augment occasionally with Prismacolor and india ink. My primary programs are Photoshop, Lightwave, and Eon Vue with a little Illustrator thrown in. I’m happy to speak process if you want to know more.

Do you have questions about the difference between the illustration and commission process? Maybe this page will help.
Have an idea that won’t rest? The kind that generates that keep-you-up-at-night-with-outlining-and-planning passion? Did you think of something that tickled your funny bone and would love to produce it? Just want to say hello or get a quote? I would love to hear from you.
