BEST OF MY WORK
I would like to show you what I can do for your company.
RETOUCHING / DESIGN / ANIMATION
ALWAYS BEST SERVICE
Many creative options for your business.
ILLUSTRATION & DESIGN
Beginning my formal training as a traditional airbrush artist and moving on to creating digital art with Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop, I have worked with these Adobe products since
their initial development.
With combined backgrounds in traditional and digital art and design, I have the advantage of being able to visually communicate your company's specific and complex issues and needs utilizing my expertise.
2D & 3D ANIMATION
I bring my extensive knowledge of multiple 2D and 3D animation programs to my assignments. Animation can help a company convey linear prototypes, ideas, and walkthroughs into “real” 2D or 3D visualizations.
3D animations of prototypes, specifically complex difficult to realize ideas, have been vital to my clients’ success in securing venture capital funding for their products.
I offer students the beneficial perspective of an active working professional with a traditional and digital background and over 20 years of
Adobe product experience.
I am an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) in Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop, and an Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) Educator in
“Visual Communication using Photoshop”.
