About the Artist - I create whimsical drawings, watercolors, and computer graphic images on the subject of science fiction, fantasy and romance. For over 20 years I have created digital art. However, lately I have been working with watercolors. Pretty much everything I do starts out as a pen & Ink sketch using the old speedball dipping pens. I then color it in with watercolors or scan the drawing and use it as a guide to work over on the computer using a pen and graphics tablet to color the image.

My new art booth at :

The Grove Arcade Portico Market,
Battery Park Avenue,
Downtown, Asheville, NC.
Phone: 828-335-6789

Mon - Sun: 10:30am to 4:30 pm

Besides creating graphic art, I design web sites and produce multimedia presentations for special events. My creative skills are computer graphic design, 3D computer modeling, animation, drawing, painting, logo design, and web design. I used to produce custom media for large corporate events, new product introduction, sales meetings, and conventions. Over the years, I've created commercial art and multimedia presentations for many of America's top corporations and associations.
