"Drawing is my connection with a better self.  It's an opportunity to escape and be absorbed in a single piece of work.  To settle into the quiet.  To look closer at something.  To push the limits of my skills.  To take pride in the finished piece and share in the happiness it brings to others."

My creative range is not limited to pencil drawings.  I am also a career graphic artist, designer and avid cartoonist.  I have a serious side which reflects in my originals, but occasionally lean on humorous and satirical themes through my cartoons and illustrated work.

I enjoyed a specialized and storied career in pre-press graphics that spanned four decades. It provided me the opportunity to blend my natural artistic feel for drawing and design with the discipline of a technologist.  I started my graphic arts apprenticeship in 1979 as a gravure color retoucher.  It was a skill position that tested my artistry and launched me into a broad number of opportunities, especially as the digital age emerged.  More recently, I have worked as a commission artist and graphic artist in the e-commerce environment.  Building a career, maintaining a family and home only delayed my hunger for laying pencil to paper - not that I would have done it any differently. 

So here we are today with a full bag of creative skills, ambitious energy, and deep imagination.  My dream in life was to find a peaceful balance between family and career while maintaining my crazy sense of humor.  Mission accomplished!

I have now found myself in a position where I can draw on a regular basis, here in the privacy of my studio.  This means I can improve my skills and see what a wider audience makes of it all.  The exploration continues.
