Illustration & Graphic Design
Besides oil painting, I also am an experienced designer.
I have decades of experience working in both digital and traditional platforms. I have used Adobe products daily for almost 2 decades, including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and DreamWeaver. I also have worked extensively in Microsoft Office products, especially Word, Excel and Power Point, integrating use of these programs in my design process when called for.
An accomplished fine artist, I have the ability to produce a wide range of illustrations in many traditional mediums, including watercolor, gouache, graphite, pen & ink, prismacolor, acrylic and oil.
With a understanding of both, I’m adept at integrating my digital and traditional skills in creating designs for a wide variety of formats from printed materials (posters, brochures, business cards, t-shirts, etc) to digital graphics (social media graphics and ads, web design, email newsletter campaigns).
Whatever the format, media or output, my primary focus is to answer two questions; what is the message that needs to be communicated and what is the best means to achieve that end. I work closely with my clients to find the result that meets their needs.
