I am a prolific illustrator with extensive journalism experience.
With more than 20 years working as a newspaper illustrator, I have developed many styles and can usually re-create any style or look that I am shown.
During my journalistic career I have worked for the sports, features, education, science, health, entertainment, news and business sections.
Most of my work is digital, but I love working with pencil, pen and ink, watercolor, acrylics and oils.
My work tends to be realistic, but whimsy is wonderful fun that I would enjoy doing more of.
I work quickly and am a stickler for detail. I work well with authors, editors and art directors.
I am the author, illustrator and designer of three books: World of Wonder, published by Kean University and The Star-Ledger, Plants and Animals, published by Quill Driver Press, People and Places, published by Quill Driver Press.
These books are like mini-encyclopedias and are based on my syndicated newspaper column, "World of Wonder," which has been published in more than 100 newspapers.
Teachers often use this series in their classrooms.
My work is suitable for magazines, children's books, advertising & marketing, as well as corporate portraits and other business material.
Fees are negotiable: Running from $75 - $300 for a color spot illustration to $300 - $2,000 for a full color spread (2 pages).
