I began drawing and painting at an early age, then attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco on a scholarship, majored in Illustration and studied under such luminaries as: Howard Brodie, Barbara Bradley, Al Parker and Bill Sanchez.
I began freelancing for ad agencies and design firms in the North Bay. Not content with specialization, I regard myself as a "visual problem solver." Utilizing a wide variety of techniques and applications, both digital and traditional. I have a dynamic range of style that covers the representational and photo-realistic to whimsical and humorous cartoons, which can change according to the situation and singular client needs.
My art has been widely used for wine labels, although it applies naturally to food and beverage, children's books and editorial not to mention other areas of advertising and design such as product and packaging.
