Biography: I have known from the first time I picked up a crayon that I wanted to be an artist. In 1992, I received Bachelor of Arts with honors with concentrations in Graphic Design, and Drawing & Painting from LaGrange College in LaGrange, Georgia. Right after that I attended the Illustration program at Portfolio Center in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating in 1994 winning several awards and honors. Worked as an on staff illustrator for a small designer firm for 1.5 years, then struck out on my own. For the past 12+ years I have tremendously enjoyed being able to pursue my love for art professionally as a fulltime freelance illustrator. I work/play from my home studio near Atlanta, GA. I have over 14 years computer graphics experience and am fluent in all of the Abobe Creative Suite 2, Painter 9, Poser 6, and the latest hardware, all of which is in my studio. My image problem solving takes many forms that fit the clients needs. By combining various situations and objects into bold and interesting angles I am able to convey clear ideas to the viewer in a realistic manner. Most of my early work is in oils, but now I can achieve a similar look which is much faster and easily edited in the computer using my own special techniques. When I'm not illustrating, I love spending time with my wife, Cindi and kids: Suzanne & Jackson. I also enjoy doing home improvement projects discussing current events and watching movies.
