About the artist:

I have always been interested in art from the time I was a small child; and it seemed natural for me to pursue this field into college. It was an exciting time of my life, very creative and challenging.  Although I earned a degree in fine arts with a teaching certificate my life went in a different direction. Instead I transitioned into the commercial graphics field; and have worked in various graphic positions in California and Washington state. 

(Resume follows.)

Currently, I am pursuing avenues which are closer to my original passion for art as a means of creative expression, work in book illustration, licensing and online sales.
