I’m the self-taught son of a gifted artist who seems to have inherited his father’s talents. Unfortunately, my high school art teacher left me with the impression that I’d never be able to do things “right,” so I focused on cartooning and sketching until becoming more serious about producing fine work as a form of therapy during one of my children’s major illnesses. One of my daughters was attending Georgia Tech at the time so my first automotive piece was a rendering of the “Ramblin’ Reck from Georgia Tech.”
My work seems to have been well accepted. I was the official artist of the Atlanta Concours d’Elegance for it’s first two seasons. My work has been purchased by BMW, hang on walls of Michelin offices in the US, and are in private collections. An original was donated to the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland to present to one of their most generous donors, a private individual also associated with one of the most highly prized collection of cars and aircraft in the United States.
In addition to my artwork, I’ve been a successful graphic designer, teacher, and am the co-author of “Beyond Digital Photography,” published by Peachpit Press. My artwork has been featured in many digital art books and publications, and I volunteered at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta where I cartooned at the bedsides of patients for many years.
