My 30+ years in the Graphic Communications and Advertising business included jobs as a Free-lance Illustrator and graphic designer with my own offices in San Francisco, CA, Art Director/Creative Director at Charles Schwab & Co., Contract graphic designer and package designer for a wide variety of products and services. Clients included multi-national, and local businesses and charitable organizations.
After retiring from the graphics business, I studied painting in oil and watercolor, etching and ceramics. I am a member of “Urban Sketchers International” “Sketchbook Workshop” and the sketch group “Ready, Set, Sketch”. I’ve shown my work at the Folsom Art Center Gallery and the Sebastopol Center for the Arts. I’m currently a gallery artist at the Healdsburg Center for the Arts, in Healdsburg, CA.
Over the years I’ve been fortunate to receive various awards and recognition for my work including Awards from the Los Angeles Society of Illustrators, Graphic Design Magazine, and PRINT Magazine. In 2020, one of my paintings was selected to be included into the “Open Exhibit” at the De Young Museum.
Today, my wife Barbara and live in Healdsburg, California where we both enjoy photography, sketching, painting and travel.
