My Story

I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Art and Design at CalArts, California Institute of the Arts, founded by Walt Disney. After graduation, I began my graphic design career at Image West Video Animation Hollywood, designing hand drawn graphics and storyboards. 

At MCA Records, I created hand lettering, designed posters and ads promoting popular recording artists. At Universal and Sony Pictures, I designed magazine print-ads and (movie poster) promotions. I have created hand drawn illustrations, logos and lettering for the industry and individual clientele.

While our 2-boys grew up; I also taught art workshops in elementary schools for 25 years. I enjoy drawing and teaching. My passion is to encourage creativity, teach technique and problem-solving skills. Contact me through email.
