Art Director • Senior Designer • Illustrator • Fine Artist
40 years experience in digital and print design, illustration, custom graphics, project and vendor management, and more. Whether presenting design options to senior executives, strategic management teams, and marketing managers – or executing all phases of the production process, my knowledge and experience gets it done.
I’ve spent the last 25+ years in corporate marketing, working mostly in high-tech industries, including IT consulting (since 2014), computer hardware manufacturing (8 years), and civilian aviation. Over the years, I’ve spent in excess of 90k hours creating an immense variety of artwork (both commercial art and fine art) including: sales and marketing materials; product packaging; technical and traditional illustration; drawing; painting; sculpture and much more.

Digital & Print Graphic Design
From 8-color brochures to interactive PDFs, to ads, to social media posts, and more, I’ve been creating sales and marketing materials for corporations and small businesses for over 30 years.
Whether you need an interactive pdf, an 8-color brochure, vector files or some type of static image for web or social media, or whatever, I know how to get it done.
Illustration & Custom Graphics
I was a highly accomplished hand illustrator and technical illustrator years before I started using computers – now computers are my favorite illustration and image creation tool. Over 30 years experience creating technical illustration, proposal graphics, marketing graphics and more.
Infographics are one of my favorite types of design projects. Complex or simple, infographics are excellent tools for quickly explaining complex subjects in an easily understandable manner.
Here are 17 examples of some of the infographics I’ve created – click on the image for a slide show.
Fine Art & Random Creations
Creating unique works of art the way I want them to be is my passion.
I’ve created hundreds of fine art projects in a wide variety of mediums, including; pencil, color pencil, oil paints and pastels, charcoal, watercolors, pen and ink, acrylics, welded and cast metals, wire, found objects, post-it notes, money, insects, alabaster, marble, spray paint, airbrush, cut-paper, photography, and an assortment of computer software (auto-cad, illustrator, photoshop, cinema 4D, and many others).
Animas – a marble sculpture
I completed this marble sculpture in October 2005 after 3-1/2 years (mostly on weekends). It stands about 4-1/2 feet high and the two pieces weigh around three tons. It was commissioned by Tom Lawlor of Longmont, Colorado, and is installed in his garden. It is the second of three stone carvings I have done, and was styled to be reminiscent of the work of Henry Moore.

Event art and silent auction
Working with one of the largest ad agencies in the Denver, Colorado area, I created this illustration for the 18th Annual First Interstate Bank Cup in Winter Park, Colorado. It was used in a variety of advertising and marketing materials, including; a brochure, a variety of ads, and 500 signed (not fun) and numbered posters. The original was later sold in a silent auction at the event for just under $4,000. See the official record at the Colorado Snowsports Museum Hall of Fame.
