My career as an artist, illustrator and designer

I have been creating art for clients for over thirty years and feel privileged to do so every day. I specialize in the creation of Abstract and Whimsical Paintings and Art Prints for Home Decor, Interior Design, and Contemporary Spaces. Contact me for any custom order and commissioned work. Wholesalers are welcome!

This new collection of original digital work was created with thoughts of the natural world in mind, with its unpredictable twisted shapes and perspective that are often found in the real world as well as in my imagination. I think of my work as abstract yet sometimes representational. I really love the colors found in nature, indigenous of the Pacific Northwest region. They speak to me and also keep me entertained as the seasons change.

‘Trained as an abstract oil painter evolving to digital’ is what describes my early journey as a professional artist and illustrator. I have been creating art using the computer for almost 30 years. I embraced ‘the digital’ at a time when computer illustration was barely realized. It feels really natural for me. Current artistic software and hardware tools mimic the traditional methods so closely now. I believe it is a very exciting time for the world to finally recognize computer generated art as a viable medium to create Fine Art.

My prints are produced with high quality inks and paper with vivid colors and sophisticated compositions. I use fade resistant archival inks which have superb clarity and vibrancy and will not fade for decades. All my prints are produced in Seattle, WA.

My digital art prints are original works in their own right as they are created not by copying a painting or physical image but because they are created using digital medium. They should not be compared to standard limited editions because they are copies of an original work. Enjoy.
