Collaborated with clients on thousands of well-received commercial and editorial illustrations, live and studio caricatures or portraits, site-specific murals, and graphic/web design projects.
Taught hundreds of art students, in groups and as individuals, of varying ages and skills. My goal in education is to provide the pace and experiences that are desired of the students in an environment that provides humor, comfort, and high-self esteem.
Created and manage a thriving art/entertainment company that combines caricature/portrait art with highly creative entertainment at festivals, corporate events, and parties.
To continue to provide: excellent commercial illustrations and marketing for local and national clients; enjoyable art entertainment experiences; meaningful group and individual art instruction with great results for my students; and to gain more experience in film and animation arts. Always looking for a chance to work for a company full time in a any related customer service, art and design fashion.
