Illustrator

I have been a commercial artist for over 40 years. In the early 90’s I began using art programs like Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Fractal Design Painter (now Corel Painter). I primarily work in those 3 programs today, some 25 years later, on a Mac Pro and using a Wacom 24 HD Cintiq.

I have always been able to draw and paint anything, in a variety of styles (I never had much interest in getting locked into an artistic “style”). However, my background and knowledge of climbing and climbing skills opened doors as an illustrator of that sport. I have been involved in creating technical illustrations for the climbing industry and publishing for over 34 years.

As a lover of outdoor sports, I’ve also enjoyed illustrating ice climbing, mountain biking, snowboarding, fly fishing, canyoneering and backpacking. I’ve also had the opportunity to write my own books and illustrate them.
