About Me


As an illustrator residing in the Hudson Valley, my goal is to create clever and witty solutions for every project I collaborate on. I provide creative content for magazines, newspapers, book covers, children's books, ad-campaigns, websites, etc. I've learned a lot from over twenty years of picture-making. I hope to share some of that wisdom with you, along with a few laughs. I grew up in Buffalo, N.Y., and studied at Parsons School of Design. You can check out my website here.

In recent years I've been exploring themes that don't necessarily fit into the realm of illustration. I've created various series of drawings and paintings; inspired by maps, lottery tickets , stamps, etc.  I've started exhibiting work in juried and non-juried shows (You can see a list below).  You can view many of these pieces here. Please write me directly if you have any inquiries about purchasing work.

I teach art classes for students of all ages. I introduce young artists to life drawing, portraiture, landscapes, murals, sketch-booking, illustration projects etc. I give an art history slideshow which is relevant to each class's lesson. It's rewarding to pass on the wisdom I've gained from picture-making to young aspiring artists. I also gain inspiration from seeing each student's approach to solving visual problems.  You can learn more about the class, and see more photos here.
