About Artist

Thanks for wanting to take the time to find out a little bit about myself.
I am an artist /illustrator living in a world between Kansas and Oklahoma. Just think of wide open plains, lots of cattle, wheat, corn, and canola fields.
I live in a tiny rural town surrounded by open fields as far as the eye can see. Most mornings, looking out the front window or back patio of my home, I am visited by tiny bird friends and their squirrel buddies frolicking under the pine and acorn trees.

Through the years, I have developed my own style of doing things. I use acrylics, pencils, watercolor and pretty much whatever else it might take to get the final look.

Life is pretty interesting. I never started out to be an artist. In fact, I am still trying to figure out what I want to be. 

I've been a dabbler of Photoshop programs since around early 2000. I've have also taken professional graphic design classes and graduated with a degree. I've worked at a newspaper designing graphic ads and various projects for over 5 years. I currently am working at a university in the print Department designing during the day.

So what am I trying to say here? Hahaha in a roundabout way I have a few years of experience behind my back. I truly love designing and making cute products that you can adjust and make your own. I try to make sure each item is as perfect as I can make them. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed creating it. Thank you for stopping by my site.

My personal artwork is usually created late at night or over the weekend when I have the time. I have been drawing and painting since late 2004.
