Not much to say, really. Since I can remember, I've been busy doing art. I’ve had a long successful career as a commercial artist, illustrator, art director, creative director, animator, animation producer and director. After 30 years as a professional, I’m very familiar with all aspects of both 2D and 3D art.
Being taught ‘on the job’ through most of my life by mentors has instilled in me the desire to become one myself. For many years I’ve been working on my fine art and most recently my training has been by master painters Brian Davis and David A. Leffel. I have sincere gratitude for the joy in creating beauty through my work and to share the insights it brings with my students and other artists.
I love to teach the fundamentals that have been overlooked for so long here in the US. Teaching for the past six years at the Nevada Museum of Art classrooms has been a honor. My classes include, Learning Color and Color Theory, Painting 1 - Oils, Painting 2 - Oils, Composition: the basics through Dynamic Symmetry, Plein Air - Capturing the light, Perspective Drawing and Learning to Draw.
As a new artist at ACME Archives, I'm developing a series of works for Disney based on the animated features and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
I'm represented by ACME Archives - Burbank California and New Masters Gallery in Carmel California.
