I've been creating works of art most of my life. I began working for a printing company at age 16 doing original printed art and I've stayed fairly busy up to now. I attended two years at Wichita Area Technical College where I majored in Commercial Art and two years at Wichita State University where I majored in Graphic Design. The majority of what I can do which includes mold making, sculpture, air brushed art, illustration, murals, portraits and computerized design were learned on the job. I've worked for design studios, themed decor companies and theme parks which is where I am now. I am restoring life size dinosaurs for three parks located in Plant City, FL - Cave City, KY and another one just outside of Dallas, TX. I've done work for Disney, Busch Gardens and Universal Studios. Ive also worked on several projects for Sesame Street located at the Hershey Company. Now I just completed writing my first novel and I hope to raise the funds to publish it. I intend to do the cover art myself. This is my current project that I feel passionate about.
