Welcome to my art and illustration website. I have carefully showcased the images from my portfolio that mean the most to me. You will notice right away that I love inventing compelling, poignant characters that will tell you a whole story and even seem to wink at you on occasion.
Almost all of my illustration work is done by hand using a digital drawing tablet and the stunning array of tools in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
My earlier work was done with paint, airbrush and pencils but fifteen years ago I took the digital plunge and I haven’t looked back. I trained through online courses, books and seminars by local and visiting experts. Today I feel reasonably confident that my knowledge and abilities in Adobe Photoshop are at a professional level. In my blog I discuss some of the things I have learned and tricks I have developed that will be especially helpful for younger illustrators.
I create my art and illustration work in my studio in rural Cape Breton Island which is the large island at the east end of The Canadian province of Nova Scotia. It appears all over the world thanks to the miracle of the web. Please take a leisurely tour through the various categories. Contact me if you are curious to see how I have handled a subject that is not shown. For your convenience I have included a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. I have tried to answer questions commonly posed by new clients.
