I graduated from college with a B.A. in Art and Experimental Curriculum. After graduating, I had several illustration and design assignments in various mid-western communities that encompassed medical illustration, childrens' illustrations, animation, clip art and product graphics. I also created traditional works of fine art and was the recipient of several wildlife stamp and print awards.
Through my work I strive to achieve focus, clarity and understanding for complex problems using simple visuals and illustrative techniques.
Today I work mostly with Photoshop, Painter, SketchBookPro and Illustrator but always rely on my experience using traditional medias. My new "traditional" technique is a blend of old and new - drawn and rendered by hand and painted digitally.
My subject matter includes the natural world, medical, how to projects, science, education, editorial illustrations, logo design, wild and domestic animals, advertising design, graphics and branding. Clients past and present include: Storey Publishing, Countryside, Equus, Rural Heritage, Backyard Poultry, Bee Culture, Pheasants Forever, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, American Riding Instructors Association, Westinghouse Learning Corporation, North American Trail Ride Conferecne, Trail Blazer Magazine, and University of Iowa Hospitals.
