I graduated from Parson’s School of Design in NYC. I have been a working professional for 26 years. I specialize in naturalistic illustration, using the combined media of airbrush, hand rendering and photoshop. This is a technique I developed that solves the problem of airbrush being too slick, and digital being too stiff, resulting in a “pasted together” look. The blend of approaches produces a beautiful unique image.
My clients include advertising agencies, design studios, and corporations. My art is frequently used for packaging, as well as POP, publishing, postage stamps and a wide variety of licensed products.
I am a perfectionist, hard working, easy going, and very professional. I pay strict attention to detail, and we meet deadlines here. If requested, I offer thumbnails, sketches and very tight, realistic color comps before going to finals. All illustration, comps or final art, is provided to you digitally.
I also offer photo-based illustration, taking the highest quality studio photography and integrating it with fine digital retouching and illustration if needed, to provide you with digitized images with a very photographic look.
My work has been accepted and on display with the Society of Illustrator’s, NYC, and Los Angeles, and traveled in the Society of Illustrator’s group show nationwide. I have been published in Creativity many times, and I have won numerous ADC awards. My work can be widely seen on grocery shelves and in department stores nationwide.
