about m.e.

I’ve been a professional artist since 1976 (see my résumé here). In that time, I’ve spent over 80,000 hours creating everything from 3D animation and motion graphics to corporate collateral to welded-metal sculpture. Currently, I’m employed as a senior designer and illustrator with CGI Inc., a Canadian-based multinational information technology consulting and systems integration company (GIB NYSE).

Over the years I’ve worked as a designer and/or illustrator for many businesses, including; IT and business consulting corporations, computer hardware and software manufacturers, a corporate relocation company, ad agencies, an airport consulting/engineering company, retail manufacturers and distributors, a technical publication company, print shops, screen printers, design shops, and a sculpture studio (my fav).

Additionally, and most importantly, I’ve created hundreds of various 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, adobe illustrator, photoshop, cinema 4D, and many others).

If you’re interested, I’ve put together an overview of my art. It’s especially useful as a coaster on coffee tables!

Got a question about brand design, custom graphics, fine art, etc.? Need design or graphics support? Wanna’ go for a ride or discuss music? Send me a message here.

Why Artrider?

That’s very simple – I’ve been an artist and motorcycle enthusiast for over 45 years, and I first started using that nickname after my friend, Don Scott (may his tortured soul rest in peace) started calling me that in the early 1990’s, as it is perfectly descriptive of who I am.
