There are two sides to every story. My art has two sides, one fine are and the other commercial art. Both have very important places in my life. My fine art allows me to express myself. My artistic talent was noticed by my second grade teacher who told my mother to watch and nurture my gift. My fine art allows me to freely express myself, no matter how bizarre the intentions. I can paint, draw, sculpt and more using whatever color, form, texture that I want in any medium I want.
My commercial art side is how I've been lucky enough to generate income for myself for decades. I've worked in type houses, printshops, newspapers, and done graphics and technical illustration, design and layout, and new product development for two large corporation for the past 20 years. I've worked as a silkscreener, an air brush artist, sign painter, and more. It all has art where being creative has a price tag.
