Pin-up retro painting

As a former Advertising Agency Creative Director, and Award Winning commercial illustrator for more than 30 years, I have worked in nearly every facet of the Art and Advertising world. Originally, a Ford Motor Company Scholar, I used my technical skills to enhance my command of a wide range of artistic styles. Working primarily in the entertainment industry, I have created the main images on countless projects for every major Hollywood studio and television network. I am the recipient of multiple awards including the prestigious “Key Art” award for my illustration for ”Batman”. I have also painted primary poster images for a variety of film genres from Sci-Fi classics like “Mad Max” to comedies such as “Monty Python’s The Meaning Of Life” and “Brazil”.

Beyond Hollywood, I have created artwork for corporate clients including Coca-Cola, The National Football League, and K2 Skiis. Outside of the commercial world, I also have worked as a Portrait artist, completing many corporate and private commissions. I am an accomplished “Plein Air” Painter, and First Place Exhibition Winner.

I live and work from my home/studio on the Pacific Ocean In Malibu, California. I am happily married with a son.
