Consumer experiences. Visual Languages. Fine art. The ephemeral.
I have been creating: icons, illustrations, package designs, paintings and murals for over 25 years. I received my MFA from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and returned years later when asked to teach illustration in their undergraduate and graduate departments. I worked in-house for Yahoo for 12 years as their Senior Creative Manager responsible for Illustration and Icon Design worldwide and more recently I worked 3 years as a Design Manager at Amazon, focusing on their K-12 Educational products.
Throughout, I have continued to pursue my passion for painting and have been accepted into various Artist in Residence programs. Notably, I was selected into the A.I.R program with the National Park Service for John Day Fossil Beds, and I was a finalist for Death Valley and Lassen (twice.)
You can also find my work in the Directory of Illustration 32 & 33.
