Welcome to DeLand,
“I’ve been drawing most of my life, ever since I could walk. I am primarily self taught. What I have learned is based on studying the masters; from DaVinci to Kirby and from countless exhaustive hours of practicing and working out my style and technique.

My main goal in life, besides the usual achieving ultimate happiness and total inner peace, is to see my own work (art & stories) published and become a success. 

I am an affordable, hard working, artist who is always available for commissions no matter the current workload.
I specialize in Comic, Science Fiction, and Fantasy subject material, and also do the occasional portrait, life illustration, and logo design.”
