Ringling College of Art and Design Illustration Alumni 1998
Alumni Illustration '98
I was born in Tampa in 1959 and raised in Naples. As a boy, my dad and I would often stop along the Tamiami Trail, break out the fly rods and catch Bass and Bluegill. Growing up fishing and hunting the Everglades was an interesting and unique part of my life that shaped a lifelong love of the outdoors.
I graduated from Ringling in 1998 earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree as an Illustrator. Since that time I’ve focused on game fish and wildlife art. Around 2000 I started illustrating game fish and marine art on navigational charts. I work in a variety of mediums, but chose acrylic as my medium of choice due to the ability to use the fast drying medium transparently, or more direct and opaque. It was an instant success. I had found my niche in the game fish market.
