I have been a commercial illustrator for 30 years. I specialize in product illustration. I have worked with numerous clients including: Coca Cola, Sony, Chick-fil-A, Arby's, Red Lobster, Harley Davidson and many more. I was conventionally trained and am a skilled air brush artist. I started to create digital art in 1994. I am most proficient in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I also have written activity books and comic books, as well as designed toys for restaurant 'kids meals'.

As a professional, I believe that the foundation to any artistic endeavor begins with drawing. If your drawing is flawed, no amount of paint will fix it. I use a hands on approach to teaching and believe that historical context is worth knowing. Digital art utilizes the same rules as old school conventional art. I know many little tricks to make digital art more dynamic and interesting.

It is important that my student does their own work on their own equipment. Little information is learned by just watching how I do something. So, I try to show the student how it can be done and then let them learn it their way. With art, there can be many different solutions to achieve success.

Adobe Illustrator

I have been using Adobe Illustrator professionally since 1997. I have used it for many high-end clients. I am skilled with working with scanned images, as well as creating graphics from scratch. I have also used the program to create Flash animations.

Art History

I had four and a half years of art history in college, beginning with cave art through Abstract Expressionism and Pop art. I had an elective course in Impressionism and post impressionism, as well as an oil painting techniques class. In this class, we studied, as well as painted, using the medieval techniques of egg tempera, egg/oil emulsion. And lastly, Renaissance oil painting.

Drawing

I have a BFA from an accredited art school. I had 4 years of figure drawing, life drawing and perspective. I have been a commercial product illustrator for 30 years. I can provide samples upon request.

Painting

I have a BFA from an accredited art school. I had 4 years of painting and painting techniques. I have been painting in watercolors, acrylics and oils for 30 years. I can provide samples if requested. I taught landscape painting at the 2013 Boy Scout Jamboree.
