My passion lead to a profession where a hobby was born
Twenty-Five years ago I was a civilian again. I just finished a four year stint in the Army and was looking for a career. I settled in with a few construction jobs for a few years. I loved building things but hated working outside in the cold.
I started telling myself I needed to work inside and work at a desk. No problem; what profession would get me there? Artist! I'll learn to be an artist!
I went to night school while working construction. After finishing art school I answered a want ad for an "artist" position. It was a cemetery monument company and they wanted someone with creative skills and computer design ambitions.
I have been creating designs for headstones for 20 years. When customers want something personal on their headstone, I take a picture or photo and "digitize" it. I love being able to take someones picture of their favorite pet or car and turn it into a sandblasted carving on their headstone.
The bulk of my clipart library is inspired by what I have been
creating in my profession. For the most part, I just love being a computer graphics designer. I hope you see my passion through my clipart.

I always had the creativity bug. My father was a graphic artist and I always liked to draw and make stuff. I went to art school while working construction. My career path lead me to the monument business. By day I design headstones.
