My Story

BKG_Outpost
Outpost - Acrylic on Canvas

I am an artist and designer who specializes in space, astronomy, and science fiction subjects. This site is a showcase of my lifelong passion for art. I love living in the future.

As far back as I can remember I've always enjoyed drawing, inspired by the Apollo missions and science fiction stories. In college I studied film making and later, Industrial Design. Both tracks gave me a chance to focus my creative energy towards visual design and production methods that would give me a wide range of skills for my career.

Then the consumer computer industry exploded, opening doors that didn't exist at the same scale when I started college. My design skills and experience allowed me to break into game design, which I later focused to user interface design. On the side I've maintained a number of creative hobbies, including scale model building, cartoons, and digital art.

I am currently a full time artist with a number of book covers to my credit. Primarily I paint with traditional materials and techniques, and I still work with digital tools for many of my projects. Recently I've taken on a number of model projects, including a range of replica planets.

If you are interested in my artwork, a number of original pieces and prints are available in my store. And I am always open to commission, so please feel free to contact me if there's something you'd like to see.
