I have always drawn or illustrated (depending on what you choose to call it). Ok... maybe that is not entirely true. I don't mean to suggest that I came out of the womb covered in charcoal and graphite shavings, waving a sketch pad in hand like a victory flag, although that would have been positively splendid. I am merely saying that I have been drawing probably as long as I have been utilizing the full splendor of being bipedal.
I guess you can call it a God given talent (if there is such a thing). I illustrate and aim for perfection each time I do so because I am compelled to.

I have become a true lover of the creative process not to mention my ever increasing fascination with science and the natural world.
I paraphrase the physicist Neal Di Grassi when he said, If Isaac Newton did not give us his “laws of motion”, eventually someone else would have, but if Vincent Van Gogh didn’t give us “starry starry night” no one else would.
I firmly believe what I do as a creative is important, special and unique in so many ways, hence it is my pleasure do my possible best in approaching, treating and delivering it with the merit is deserves. Read Less
