I was born to draw. My childhood talents were spent on an Etch-A-Sketch. I was fascinated with and adored Marvel Comics, so I spent most of my time drawing from those comic books. I also drew from the occasional Disney movie coloring book.
My dad was in the oil & gas industry and got me my first commissioned art job for Halliburton when I was in junior high. In the years after that job, I spent a lot of time in junior high, high school and college doing paintings in acrylics of the oil & gas industry. My dad helped me sell probably 30+ paintings back then. Thus, I didn't have to mow lawns during the summer for spending money. LOL!
I have worked in many mediums, including acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil and graphite, digital art and cartooning.
Most of the illustration work I’ve done is for ad agencies. I work with art directors or creative directors in taking a project from the concept stage, through rough sketches then to finished art. Other work includes marker comps for outdoor media, storyboard layout and comps for client ad campaigns, production or pasteup work and building displays.
