Hi! I have over fifteen years of experience as a professional commercial artist in the advertising field, and five years as an instructor of graphics and digital illustration at pratt institute, westchester community college, marymount manhattan and skidmore cci. I specializes in art nouveau influenced poster design, adverisements, package design and bookcovers.

I am a traditionally trained artist - graduate of pratt institute, summa cum laude (presidents award for academic excellence). A traditional background in art focuses on skills such as drawing and painting as well as perspective and color theory. This allows me to translate the client's concept into whatever media best suits the job - therefore I am a very versatile artist, who is not limited by any one medium.

Can you tell me about your process a little bit? You are one of the graphic designers we are learning in our class lol!

Thank you. 

I start with a sketch, and then do a model shoot or collect reference. Then I do a drawing in graphite on vellum. From there, I scan it in and then paint in Photoshop and sometimes create elements in Illustrator and merged them in Photoshop. If I want special textures, I might find or create my own and scan them in to include in Photoshop. In my personal work, I will print out the piece as a Giclee onto canvas or art paper and then paint, varnish, and gild, on top of it.

Which class and where?
