Summary

I have been drawing and painting and designing and building things and changing my environment for as long as I can remember. My father instilled in me a love of work, a love of art, a love of people and a creative curiosity that has always pushed me to discover new techniques and delve into various disciplines. I’ve been a rodeo rider, an award winning illustrator, high end restaurant graphics designer (NYC, Las Vegas & Palm Beach), packaging designer, website marketer and designer, business creator, landscape designer, but at my core, a portrait painter.
I’ve received hundreds of awards from art journals and organizations worldwide.
