I am a graphic designer of 20 years. I create using the talents and skills given to me by my Lord and Savior. Collecting resources such as photography, illustration, and video are primary to my design success. This is why I photograph, illustrate and video my own resources. If you like the idea of having a custom design, I am your guy. Please feel free to contact me if you have any graphic design, photography or illustration work you need done. Thanks for your time and have a blessed day.

I am an artist with a God given talent that I need to share. Not your typical art school educated artist. I have no letters after my name. I have spent the last six years mentoring under a professional artist, painting, sculpting, building creative environments. My specialty is airbrushing, but my gift is shared whenever I put my heart and hands to task. I have found I work most effectively when serving another person or persons vision or dream. Like I said I have a gift from God to bless others with. I am local to Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Vancouver Island, and the lower mainland. Part of my dream is to paint any where and every where for anyone ....
