I recognized two things at a young age. The first was that I wanted to become a professional artist. The second was that I couldn't draw. This delayed me for quite some time. I filled that time pursuing other artistic interests such as music and writing, but the urge to draw never left.
At age 19 I began to study classical drawing, which led me to kindle a love for painting and illustration. I haven't looked back since.
My experience includes books, film, animation, and advertising. My clients include: Walt Disney Publishing Worldwide, LEGO, LucasArts, Mattel Toys, Fisher-Price, Hasbro, Nelvana, GURU Studio, C.O.R.E. Digital Pictures, Yowza! Animation Inc., Pipeline Studios, and more.
I'm also a passionate teacher, and currently teach "The Art Of Color & Light" at CGMA, a course specifically designed to build painting fundamentals from the ground up.
