My Bio
Hi! I have over fifteen years of experience as a professional commercial artist in the advertising field, and five years as an instructor of graphics and digital illustration at pratt institute, westchester community college, marymount manhattan and skidmore cci. I specializes in art nouveau influenced poster design, adverisements, package design and bookcovers.

I am a traditionally trained artist - graduate of pratt institute, summa cum laude (presidents award for academic excellence). A traditional background in art focuses on skills such as drawing and painting as well as perspective and color theory. This allows me to translate the client's concept into whatever media best suits the job - therefore I am a very versatile artist, who is not limited by any one medium.

Hey there! :la:

Nice art :wow:  If you're ever looking to share your work with other people, live, you should check out #ThumbHub on dAmn (Did you know we had a chat system!? A lot of people don't :( ) We get a lot of great artists popping in to share their work and it varies from Traditional art, to photography, to poetry :) Also a great place to gain more exposure for your art AND to make some new friends xx

Hope to see you there some time :heart:

Hey! Love your work! It is superb! <3!

Out of curiosity, why use Illustrator? Why not stick with Photoshop for the entire thing? Doesn't PS have much of the same tools as well?
Sorry for the late reply. Illustrator is a dedicated Vector program with many many many more vector tools available. Photoshop is great - but can't do what I need it to do with vectors.
