I love creating colorful wacky offbeat images.
How did I get started? It's a long and dramatic story that could easily be turned into an EPIC trilogy.
But here's the short dull version...
I grew up in the rockin' city Nashville, Tennessee. I got a four year graphic arts and illustration degree at Memphis College of Art. In high school and college I drew caricatures at a theme park called Opryland. I was the art director of a planetarium and the International Airport in Nashville. I lived in Las Vegas for 2 years. I now reside in Los Angeles, finding endless inspiration online while chugging coffee.
