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,
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.
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.
