Brief Summary
As a child I won poster contests and always impressed the teachers with my inspired response to the assignments. I majored in visual art when I attended the University of Colorado, where I earned a BFA in drawing and painting.

Through many jobs in design, educational publishing, self-publishing and advertising, I realized that the picture-making part of every project absorbed and excited me the most. I've always thrived on assignments, applying my own special magic and winning affirmations from clients. When I moved to Seattle I studied illustration at the School of Visual Concepts to build a more commercial portfolio, attracted a rep, and started to freelance as an illustrator.

On my web site at you can enjoy examples of my most successful and widely applicable illustration style.  I've had the good fortune to work with wonderful designers from agencies representing a variety of businesses and institutions from all over the USA and Canada. The spirited colors and expressive line of this style works well in ads, on book jackets, packaging, posters, web pages, illustrated logos, and more!

Also, check out my Fine Art web site at and see how I work from the figure in watercolor and sumi-e.  My watercolor paintings are being accepted into juried art shows.

As a bridge between my illustration and fine art work I’ve been teaching Watercolor for Illustration at Bellevue College in near Seattle for several years. I teach the basics of watercolor while the students learn the discipline of planning a painting as if working with an art director. They've inspired me to delve further into watercolor as an expressive medium.
