Have been a professional illustrator/portrait painter for 41 years in the Chicago area. My work is in both corporate & private art collections worldwide, primarily in the USA, Canada & Europe. I received my Master's of Fine Arts degree (MFA) from Northern Illinois University. I work primarily from both memory(stylized) and photo reference material, which can be supplied by the client, if preferred. The media I work with is oil, acrylic, pastel, charcoal & graphite pencil, watercolor, pen & ink, collage/mixed media and wood laminated sculpture. All sorts of illustration, landscape, collage/mixed media & portrait commissions are accepted with a required 50% down payment to begin the job. Written contracts are available.
