As a professional graphic designer for twenty-four years, I often infuse my graphic design sensibilities into my artwork and illustrations. I prefer painting on various types of wood instead of the traditional canvas. My style ranges from semi-realistic portraits with typography to cartoon, doodle, graffiti-esque creations. I often resort to creating stream-of-conscience doodle drawings on any piece of paper or bar napkin I can find. I then scan these doodles into my computer, colorize them, and make prints on paper, canvas, or shirts. I have done some mural work at a local skate park and participated in various art shows; including Dirty Show/Dirty Detroit, a Solo Show at Indigo Art Gallery, and Boneyard Arts Festival in Champaign, IL. My artwork has been published in Studio Visit Magazine, Art Voices Magazine, and the Artist book 101 Artist curated by Terrence Sanders. One of my pieces was used in a living room scene for the feature film X-Men: Days of Future Past. I doodle, draw, paint, and create work that turns me on. It’s the only way to go.
