•3D Modeling & Sculpture • Illustration & Concept Art • Doll & Toy Design • Graphic Design Hi! Thank you for clicking here to view the results of my digital and traditional artistic talents. It would be great if my skills and experience are just what you are seeking for that new project. I offer diversity of experience, flexibility in skill sets, versatility in artistic styles and occasional innovations. All work displayed is my own from design to finish, excepting known logos. 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. I created prototypes for sales presentations, pricing, engineering analysis and photo shoots. My initial foundation is illustration and graphic design, created primarily for print production. Additional skill sets came through designing and sculpting commercial product for collectible giftware, dolls, toys and consumer use. These items were successfully distributed to both small and mass retail outlets. 3D modeling skills are my newest "tool" addition, bringing my sculpting talents into the digital domain. 3D skills require learning many other software applications. Continuous learning and artistic growth is truly the most relevant skill required for today's vibrant technological growth and social media marketing evolution.
