About

After retiring from law enforcement I migrated to what I have been doing on and off all my life, drawing and illustrating. I started my art business full time in 1991 shortly after retirement and have been there since. My style is more realistic but I do have a lighter side that gives me the freedom to express myself in a more whimsical and satirical manner, and though I am self taught in traditional art, I have also included digital art as a means to keep up with my clients and their hectic schedules. Both have allowed me to express my style in children's books and illustrating cover art for authors and publishers. I dabble in other forms of art that are personal to me and that allow me to express my views and personality. I hope that you have enjoyed what you have seen in my portfolio and thank you for your visit.
