Throughout my formal education I majored in fine art and commercial art. A native of So. California since 1955 I was raised in Pasadena. I moved to La Jolla in 1969 where I owned and operated an art and gift store. It was during those years that I traveled the world. I moved to Hawaii in 1979 and lived there through the 80’s, until I returned to California in 1991.
While in Hawaii, I released a series of original acrylic paintings on canvas and hand pulled, limited edition serigraphs. These images were exhibited in several one man shows in Honolulu including the Black Orchid the Honolulu Club, The Framery Art Gallery and other venues.
In 1992 I attended Platt College in Orange County, and received a degree in computer graphics and web design in 2000. I have worked in all phases of the commercial creative process, developing advertising and marketing tools for in-house marketing departments, design studios, individual clients and advertising agencies in Hawaii and California.
In 2002 I attended Mission Renaissance Fine Art Academy where I studied sketching, composition, color theory, and different techniques of representational painting with oils on canvas.
My commercial experience includes design and production of logos, brochures, multi page ads, web sites, newsletters, signage, identity packages, and catalogs. My computer of choice is Macintosh.
