Overview

Though I grew up in Upstate New York, I'm influenced by my years spent in urban environments during college and afterwards by my travels to Kenya, Malaysia, and now Seychelles; that, I think, shows up in my illustrations, paintings, and sculptures.

When I'm creating I try to have a visual conversation with the viewer, to make a connection, to tell a story, or share a thought. I like it when the viewer leaves with a positive memory to keep.

Because I've been illustrating since 1987, storytelling through a single image is like a second nature now. It almost comes naturally, of course with some help from a good cup of coffee and some Dave Matthews playing at the background. My illustrative instinct flows into my paintings and I like that.

My visual language is a good conglomeration of years of cartoon watching, the fact that I think in pictures since I am a diagnosed dyslexic, from the George Washington University where I earned a BA in 1983 and an MFA in 1987, and of course with every project I get into I learn new things and grow more as an artist.
