The great scholar of mythology Joseph Campbell tells us “artists are mystics who have a craft”. Taking this to heart, I delve into the mystical side of the human condition and bring back to share with the world the touristy snapshots I have seen along the way. Most are whimsical and playful, but there are shadow lands to visit as well. In addition, sometimes the artist/mystics must use their craft in the commercial world of art to bring to life the dreams of others. I have worked as a production artist for such clients as Disney, Cirque Du Soliel, and Universal Studios. My personal style reflects my illustrative side as I enjoy painting fanciful, dream like images. For me, when I am in the zone, it is easy to see that It is all a wonderful playground to share and enjoy!
