In the 80's I worked as a lettering artist for several independent comic companies such as Malibu, Eternity and Elite. Some of the titles I worked on were STEALTH FORCE, DARK WOLF, FIST OF GOD and THE LIBERATOR. Although the 90's were pretty much dedicated to raising my two daughters, I still did some part time free-lance work, including some T-shirt design/printing and was lettering artist on the book CAVEWOMAN for Caliber Comics. I started painting full-time in the year 2000. In the last 13 years I've produced and sold over 600 paintings, selling online and through several galleries across the United States and in the United Kingdom. All my paintings are ORIGINAL - completely hand drawn and hand painted. No digital images, stencils, or any type of printing or silk-screening used.
