About me.

I have been a freelance artist for 15+ years while living in Albany, NY. It has been an interesting time, and with each new job or client I continue to grow and evolve my artistic career. My aim is to have fun creating quality work that exceeds the client’s expectation. My clients include individuals as well as local businesses such as Empire Wine & Liquor outlet, The Albany Distilling Co., Wolff’s Biergarten, Casa Visco, About Faces, and many more. I also participate in street fairs throughout the summer months where I can be found drawing caricatures from life.

 

I became serious about being a commercial artist while studying Illustration at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL. It was there under the Florida sun that I learned how to paint and use color. Since returning to the Northeast, I have retained some of the rich, saturated hues of the Florida landscape while embracing the nuance earth tones of the area.

 

Like many trained illustrators, I have worked as a designer. I enjoy balancing my time between the digital and analog worlds and everywhere in-between. Experimenting with different media is what makes the work exciting and seldom repetitive.

 

I currently live with my wife and and dog Gus where I work from home, and have both an office and studio space dedicated to facilitate a creative and productive environment.
