Quick Facts
Statement

As a painter and illustrator I create my own universe that is populated with characters of my own design. My paintings usually start with a character from my sketch books and then evolve into several characters interacting in an environment and telling a story. These characters often take on a life of their own especially when I start to paint them on canvas or in clay.

I am kept busy illustrating for many companies such as Yahoo!, Hitatchi, Apple and Hasbro and painting commissioned pieces for people's homes and businesses. My characters can be found on various children’s products including books, posters and clothing.

Along with illustration I am now focusing on painting and have had solo and group shows in the bay area including San Francisco, L.A. and San Diego. I am also doing commissioned paintings for peoples homes and restaurants.
