    I love what I do and am pretty sure this shows in my work. I have 16 years' solid professional experience as an all-round graphic designer/illustrator with numerous projects completed for some of the world's leading brands. Good freehand drawing skills which I have managed to translate into vector illustration techniques, plus a keen eye for aesthetic beauty and attention to detail. Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator are my weapons of choice and have expert knowledge in both applications.

    Unique Visual Artist

    United States - Portfolio: 45

    Being a professional artist is challenging and exciting. You never know what will present itself from day to day. I look forward to creating a new piece of art for you. I have been working as an artist for more then 20 years and as a perfectionist when it comes to my artwork, I will continue for years to come. It is important to me that I not only get the design right for a client but that they are blown away by the art and possibly, working with me again. I am already delighted that you stopped by to read my page and I encourage you to read and view on, you never know what may appeal for your design and art needs. Thank you and enjoy!
