|Location:||Marina, United States|
|About artist:||I live in Marina, California, a mile or so from Monterey Bay and about 12 miles from downtown Monterey. Monterey was made famous by Salinas native John Steinbeck with his book, 'Cannery Row', among many others. |
Within easy driving reach are the communities of Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Carmel Valley, Salinas, Big Sur, Moss Landing, Santa Cruz, and Yosemite as well as most of Northern California.
Other subject-matter locations will include, Hawaii, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Great Britain, Ireland and possibly the Netherlands.
My work begins with my composing photographs while on location, bringing them into my computer and enriching, enhancing and/or manipulating the subject. I don't have one specific style but like to play with context, mood, shapes, and feeling. I know, these are all squishy-feely explanations. I just want my work to look good, be enjoyed by others, and to be showered with newly minted doubloons I can make into piles and jump into.
My professional credentials are equally impressive. I went to college in Northwestern Ohio, majored in Graphic Design with a degree in Fine Arts, which I didn't receive because I flunked Italian. I've painted in acrylics and oils, fabricated jewelry, constructed sculptures, built facades of Victorian Houses and other historic buildings using balsa and Elmer's Glue, been a production artist, designer, creative director, marketing director, business owner, and will make beer runs if everyone chips in. I was even a licensed street artist in the City of San Francisco. I used to freeze my ass off every weekend sitting down at the Embarcadero.
I hope you enjoy my small efforts and look forward to hearing 'only' nice things from you. Otherwise, don't contact me.
|About art:||Taken from my original photographs, I've brought them into my computer and re-rendered them into digital illustrations. The subject matter is as varied as the locales they were taken from; Monterey Bay and environs, Northern California, Montana, Victoria, BC, Canada, Hawaii, New Zealand, London, Rotterdam, and Mexico.|
