I’m a professional illustrator based in Central New York. I love doing great work for wonderful clients. Some of my friends think I draw pictures for a living; sometimes I do.I began a career as a designer, and quickly moved into illustration and then art direction. I work entirely digitally. Photoshop and a Wacom tablet are my brush and easel. I’ve worked with magazines, universities, retailers, in-house marketing, advertising agencies, and publishers. At heart I am simply a problem solver.I would love to hear from you!
