I was an artist from the time I could hold a crayon, and since encountering silk-screen and other printing techniques in high school, I have been designing illustration, signage, cards, and so forth. When I discovered digital imaging my world exploded. I divide my time between digital graphics and art, and hands-on mixed-media, and often use one to push the other. I enjoy commission work because I love the challenge of helping institutions, or individuals, tell their stories.
