“Capturing moments. Finding Dreamers. Illustration: Life as you perceive and interpret it. I've worked as a freelance commercial artist for over 40 years; all of my illustrations are realistically-styled. My preferred media is digital painting. I also provide video editing and photo retouching services.”

Capturing moments. Finding Dreamers. Illustration: Life as you perceive and interpret it.

"I don't remember a time that I didn't draw. I began drawing "seriously" in High School and intended to become a Technical Illustrator. Lack of planning and foresight led me to a degree in Architecture, instead of an education in Art. Further distractions, such as "lack of work" led me to two construction-related careers. Nonetheless, I've worked as a freelance commercial artist and designer for over 40 years, finding little time for book illustration until 1988, when a ruptured appendix and a brush with death caused me to re-evaluate my goals and priorities. I realized that my future wasn't predictable; it was time to be intentional about my career as an illustrator.

I've worked as a freelance commercial artist & designer for over 40 years. I’ve exhibited my work in several local and national shows; one-man exhibitions, and I have two illustrations in the permanent collection of the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas, Texas. My preferred media is digital painting. 

As of this writing, I’ve illustrated seven children’s books, two books for adults, created numerous illustrations for a variety of clients, including Scholastic Inc. and the Yellowstone Park Foundation. In 2015, I added digital publishing to my business."
