•3D Modeling & Sculpture • Illustration & Concept Art • Doll & Toy Design • Graphic Design Hi! Thank you for clicking here to view my digital and traditional artistic work. I offer diverse experience, multiple skill sets, and versatile design styles. All work displayed is my own from design to finish, excepting any well-known logos. I believe I have grown as a designer through interaction with talented engineers, marketing/advertising teams, manufacturers, and many other experts along production pipelines. And at each level up, I see there is more to learn in becoming a better designer and artist. My foundation is my illustration and graphic design skills. From there I continued to design and sculpt commercial product for giftware, dolls, toys and other consumer products. 3D modeling skills are my newest "tool" addition, bringing my sculpting talents in alignment with the current digital domain. 3D skills require learning many other software applications, keeping me on a continual learning path. Along the way, I am looking forward to new projects.
