I earned a B.A. in Graphic Design from the University of Florida.
working for a few years as a Graphic Designer and Art Director,
to school in New York to get a B.F.A. in Illustration at Pratt
Brooklyn. I also took classes at School of Visual Arts.
I free-lanced for 20 years in Boston and Orlando, doing a
broad range of
Illustration assignments that included Book Jacket Covers (including
Christie books) , Corporate (lots of work for DISNEY Imagineering
Animation), Advertising, Publishing, and Magazine work. That
represented in all the other galleries on my site. In 1999
I accepted a job
as an Editorial Artist with The Orlando Sentinel, where I have
THOUSANDS of illustrations, primarily for Sports. It was while
I was at the
Sentinel that I was first encouraged to do Caricatures, and
they are the
most fun and fulfilling of all the kinds of art I do.
married my high school sweetheart, we have 3 daughters. The
in still in high school and the older 2 attend Georgia Tech
going to the Sentinel, I taught Illustration and Computer
The University of Central Florida and Valencia Community College.
very fulfilling, and I would be willing to do that again if
situation presented itself.
I would love to do some art for you. More
than likely, it will be digital. I
usually always draw my art first to a very finished pencil
drawing. I scan
that in and paint and photoshop it in the computer. However,
I've still got
the brushes, turpentine, etc. in case you want original art.
I recently did
a 24" by 36" acrylic painting of Bobby Bowden in
2 days. You can see it in my"
Portraits" Gallery. The newsroom was buzzing because someone
back in the
art department was doing a REAL painting! It turned out GREAT,
and I am
totally up to doing more of those.
Try to explore all my art at all the buttons
if you have time. Before my
digital plunge, I was developing a specialty doing historical
History has always been a favorite subject of mine.
