I am a career artist mainly known for my whimsical character creations such as Strawberry Shortcake & Friends and the Get-Along-Gang. I live in a mountain bungalow with a studio loft but it is my laptop that is the busiest lately creating 3D imagery. My passion other than art is collecting which I have done over the past 40 years. There is no fun collecting for me unless research is involved. A year of stapler collecting has been fun.
