•3D Modeling & Sculpture • Illustration & Concept Art • Doll & Toy Design • Graphic Design Hi! Thank you for clicking on my site. I think you will enjoy the results of both my digital and traditional artistic talents. And it will be super if my skills and experience are just what you are seeking for your project. My best wishes to you and great success too! All work displayed is my own from design to finish, excepting known logos. I will share my hands-on management experience at every level of development. I have grown as a designer from having direct interaction with engineers, marketing/advertising teams, material selections, manufacturers and many other experts along the pipeline. Often I created mockups for presentations, pricing, cost analysis and photo shoots. I use every skill I have from drawing to sewing, to bring a new concept to market. The initial foundation of my early work experience is graphic design and print production. My next growth opportunity came through designing and sculpting commercial product for collectible giftware, dolls, toys and consumer products. These items were successfully distributed to both small and mass retail outlets. 3D modeling skills are the newest addition, bringing my sculpts into the digital domain; 3D skills also require learning many other software applications. The learning and improving can never stop and as I progress, I will share the results with any who review my portfolio.
