In addition to creating Packaging for wineries I create detailed Maps that portray the features that
are unique to a particular property. Many feature single vineyards that produce upper tier wines.
Sometimes a drawing of the property, whether it's from the sky above or from high on a hill, can
capture the romance and art of grape-growing and viticulture better than a photograph.
I have sketched from small airplanes, a helicopter, a plane so tiny that I sat behind the pilot as he
banked at sharp angles over the vineyards, a 4-wheel ATV and, of course, my Red Truck.
Many times I have spent a day riding my mountain bike up & down dirt roads stopping to sketch.
I've been alone on a green hill-top and all you can hear is the sound of a thousand bees.
Rattlesnakes? Yes. Jack Rabbits? Yes. Geese overhead? Yes. Crows? Oh Yeah.
It's the best part of what I do. To be alone with the elements tamed and wild.
To draw what I feel and see.
