Illustration

Have fun exploring my illustrations! Selected pieces represent works created from 1976 through 2006.

 

As an illustrator, I was trained to master many different styles and media. You will see work in acrylics, luma dyes, ink, mixed media, watercolor, pastels, oils, woodcut, etchings, and prisma pencil. Styles range from photo realism to abstraction and techniques include pointillism, airbrush, atomizing, drawing, and aquatint.

Now, I paint exclusively with acrylics on canvas.
