In college I studied film production, fine art, and Industrial Design. For over 17 years I was a User Experience Designer in the software industry, and lead designer at a well-known game company.
At the start of any project, I like to work with the author to craft an image that best suits their story. Typically I begin with several sketch studies that help define the overall layout, color, and tone of their cover. Once we have agreement on the artistic direction, I begin working on the actual artwork. The artwork is then presented for review before finalizing the project so that the author or publisher is happy with the result.
I am inspired by many great science fiction and astronomy artists like John Berkey, John Harris, Vincent DiFate, Chris Foss, and Bob Eggleton. Comfortable with both traditional painting and digital tools, I like to create a unique look using color and contrast to make a title exciting.
Professional artist and illustrator, working in both traditional and digital media, specializing in science fiction and astronomy themes.
