I am an artist + author living in northern Alabama. During my career and travels I lived in Texas,Georgia, South Carolina, Michigan, Colorado, Ohio, Indiana, Minnesota, Italy, and Alabama. Passions include art, travel, museums, gardens, and reading. My art work is a chronology of visual obsessions and observations. These are my experiences and adventures, documented in my illustrated journals
In years past I worked for amazing agencies and clients like the Huntsville Humane Society, Dana Corporation, PBS, NPR, WGBH, ABC, and the DNR. Previous jobs include Professor of Graphic Arts, Senior Designer, Assistant Art Director, Creative Director, Associate Editor, Guest Editor, illustrator, courtroom artist, publication designer, portrait artist, and freelance author. As a Professor of Graphic Arts I taught all forms and levels of graphic arts (drawing, printmaking, and design for nearly thirty years. I recently retired from full time teaching, though I teach workshops and tutor in my studio in addition to being a Lecturer at the University of Alabama – Huntsville.
My studio is located at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment in Huntsville, Alabama. I am available for freelance work and commissions.
