I am an award-winning caricaturist and freelance illustrator who has been drawing ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil. My enrollment at the Academy of Art University in California, as well as two Wisconsin State Universities, educated me in a variety of art concentrations. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 1999.
I launched my career as a professional caricature artist in 1998 when I applied for a summer job at Valleyfair Amusement Park in Shakopee, Minnesota. While employed there, I came under the instruction of renowned MAD Magazine caricature artist Tom Richmond. I later started my own company, Exaggerated Entertainment, through which I serves as a caricature artist and agent serving corporate events and private parties in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
A member of the International Society of Caricature Artists, I won the organization's prestigious Golden Nosey Award (the Oscar of the caricature industry) for "Caricaturist of the Year" in 2006. I am also a nationally published illustrator and my work has appeared in a variety of periodicals and publications, including FHM, FLEX and PLAY-BOY to name a few.
I currently reside in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where I continue to develop both my craft and well deserved reputation as one of America's premier artists. You can contact me at 715-379-1877 or firstname.lastname@example.org
