CONTACT ME FOR ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT PURCHASING MY ARTWORK, WORKING ON A GRAPHIC DESIGN PROJECT, OR ANY OTHER SERVICES OR CLASSES. THANK YOU!
Some of my abstract paintings. I work in various mediums, but the majority is acrylics or mixed media. I like to explore the colors and textures in my artwork. Abstracts are a great way to express your feelings.
I have been working on a series of rockers, musicians and singers done in a graphic style using a limited or monochromatic palette.
I create my digital art in many ways. Sometimes I paint with a tablet directly on the screen, or I often start with a photo and then use the computer to manipulate it to create a unique design.
As a Graphic Designer with many years of working with a wide variety of clients, I know the key to a successful design project lies in clear communication at every step of the design process. I will keep you abreast of the latest ideas, designs, and creative developments on your project. My prices are reasonable and I always meet my deadlines.
I started curating art exhibits several years ago and have had great success with all of them, all of which were favorably reviewed in the local newspapers. My themed exhibits were all well attended and a big hit with both artists and gallery attendees.
