ART, ILLUSTRATION, WRITING, DESIGN & DIGITAL SURFACING

Illustration and Design Styles

My portfolio highlights my complete range of abilities and illustration styles. I have extensive academic art training, professional and technical training in both traditional mediums and digital media.  I can create fully rendered acrylic paintings with a painterly style and a high degree of realism.  I also work with a more character driven, whimsical style using pen, ink and watercolor.  My styles also translate well to digital images created entirely in Photoshop with a more graphic quality.
