Studio, Crescent City CA

Hello and welcome. The visual arts have always been an important means of expression for me. For as long as I can remember, I have felt comfortable with a pencil and paper in my hands. My formal education concluded with a degree in Fine Art from Humboldt State University in 1973, with an emphasis on drawing and printmaking. 

After graduating, I worked at a community art center that I remember fondly for the people I met and the experiences I had. I later worked as a letterpress printer in a small shop where I designed many of the  jobs that I printed. I began my career as a freelance illustrator in 1981 when I moved to Seattle and made the rounds with a portfolio of newly created airbrush art. While working with advertising agencies, design studios and publishers, I illustrated a wide range of subjects and ideas which was a wonderful learning experience. In 1997, after seeing the new work being created by computer artists, I began working with digital media and have never looked back. I am now right at home with my Mac and am amazed with the advances in digital imagery in recent years. I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with many talented artists and design professionals in the Pacific Northwest as well as many large northwest and national corporations.

In 2006 I returned to Eureka on California’s beautiful north coast where I am originally from. In November 2013, I moved to my new home and studio in Crescent City, CA which is on the coast about 20 miles south of the California-Oregon border. I am now concentrating on my own art and am mostly retired from commercial work. My studio is centered around an iMac computer with a graphics tablet and my tools include Illustrator, Photoshop and Painter software applications. I produce my own limited edition, archival quality fine art prints with a professional eight-color, pigment inkjet printer.

I hope you enjoy seeing my work. Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. Thank you for visiting.
