QUALIFICATIONS

I am first and foremost a visual storyteller with a sense for cinematic composition.  I am an excellent figurative artist, working in both traditional and digital 2D media (including pencil, pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic, oil, pastel, linotype, woodcut, silkscreen, mosaic, Photoshop, Illustrator, Painter and Flash.) I am experienced with illustration, storyboarding, designing characters, costume, props and scenes. I am experienced with layout of advertisements, brochures, and point of purchase displays. I have a fine arts background and education combined with commercial design and production experience, and a love of illustration for education and entertainment.
