As an artist designer I like to create custom artworks for residential and commercial spaces. I live and work in the city of Montreal, Quebec, and my artistic talent is multidisciplinary. I have a degree in fine arts, graphic design, and interior design with a specialization in colors. I'm an artist designer in visual arts, and I like to create artworks as a command for companies and particulars within the context of eco conception and innovation. To create my originals I use several media and techniques including acrylic painting, collage, drawing, digital and microphotography. I also work with a microphotography technique that is very unique, and which is an unlimited source of inspiration, to create visual effects that are totally unusual. I work on stretched canvas, wood, metal, fabric, acrylic and a special textile specially made for the outsides. I also produce on special orders for many corporate firms exploring figurative, abstract, contemporary, fantasy, and surrealism styles. On demand I can have make nice prints of my artworks on different surfaces, and also for corporative promotional products. My goal is to share my passion, to create and to be very innovative, so I can conduct my work into a festive, inspiring and very surprising world.

I am currently employed as a senior space industry analyst, but I also do graphic design, illustration, and fine art as needed for our clients, which include commercial and government aerospace organizations. I can produce anything from infographics to original paintings using digital (Photoshop and Corel Painter) to traditional (pencil, marker, acrylic, and oil). For digital work, I prefer to sketch the composition in pencil, scan it, then paint over it using no more than two layers. I also build scale models for clients now and then using plastic, wood, or metal. I've painted murals on interior walls, drawn many portraits, painted nose art for bombers, rendered book covers, and produced graphics for NASA and FAA report content. I have 14 years of space industry experience and over 20 years experience as an artist. Though I have very recently shifted attention to fine art (oils), I decided it was about time to do some freelance illustration work while still maintaining my "day job" career path. I prefer to work on projects that merge the creative with the rational, the art with the science.
