PERSONAL BACKGROUND

Web_Site_Biography_page

I was born in 1963 on a Naval Base in Keflavik, Iceland. I lived in many places growing up, from Alaska to South Carolina. From an early age, I enjoyed painting and drawing but received no formal training.

At the University of South Carolina I was a Business Major earning degrees in Management and Management Science. After graduating in 1985, I went to work for General Motors in Detroit, Michigan. Employed by Electronic Data Systems (EDS), I was a Software Systems Engineer for five years. In 1990, I returned south to become a Senior Consultant with Price Waterhouse in Charlotte, North Carolina.

On February 1, 1992 I quit my corporate career and moved back to South Carolina to fulfill my dream of becoming an Artist. Today I travel and exhibit my work at juried art festivals throughout the United States.

CURRENT WORK PROCESS

Web_Site_Biography_page

My Original Digital Paintings, created entirely on the computer, are inspired by my collection and passion for antique toys and games. I strive to create unique and contemporary artwork with a nostalgic quality.

I create my Digital Paintings on a 27 inch Apple iMac with the use of a WACOM graphics tablet. A drawing software application called Inkscape is used to create the design, then Photoshop is used to digitally paint the finished image. I print a limited edition of each image with an EPSON Stylus Pro 3800 Printer using archival inks and paper. I also matt and frame all my own artwork using archival materials.
