I began drawing and painting at an early age. A personal challenge and laborious hard won effort eventually evolved into a passion. After High School I attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco on a scholarship, majored in Illustration and studied under such luminaries as: Howard Brodie, Barbara Bradley, Al Parker and Bill Sanchez.
I began freelancing for ad agencies and design firms in the North Bay. Not content with specialization, I regard myself as a “visual problem solver.” Utilizing a dynamic range of styles and techniques and apply them through both digital and traditional means.
My illustration has been widely used for wine labels, although it applies naturally to food and beverage, children’s books and editorial not to mention other areas of advertising and design such as product and packaging.
My fine art… well, it speaks for it’s self. I love painting and I think it shows.
