Born with a pencil in my hand, I've been drawing and painting as long as I can remember. It was a no-brainer to pick a career in art, and I've been fortunate to have a career that's spanned four decades. I started out as an illustrator and layout artist creating ads for Yellow Pages directories across the US (if you're under 30, Google the Yellow Pages!). Drawing septic tank pumping trucks and hand printing text wasn't a glamorous job but it paid the bills and was a good start. From there I found my way into creating graphics and illustrations for a bicycle clothing company, educational software for kids, computer based training for medical equipment and SAP, and finally wound up in the online gaming world where I created user interface design and at least a million and a half tiny icons. With my recent retirement from the "real" working world I'm now focused on painting and drawing full time. It has been a lifelong dream to be able to do so, and I'm super excited to have the time. 

Thank you for dropping by! I hope you enjoy browsing through my work. Email me at pixelpainter@cox.net for more information or pricing. I'd love to have one of my pieces find its way into your home!
