WHO I AM
I’m a digital artist specializing in composite images & creative retouching. I have 20+ years experience in commercial design, illustration and art direction. Those skill sets are leveraged in every retouching project I’m involved with.
MY ROLE IN THE PROCESS
I view my retouching and composite work as creative communication. With every assignment, my objective is to promote my client’s message as clearly as possible through beautifully crafted images.
My first memory as an artist involves being reprimanded by my kindergarten teacher (Mrs. Weizdosh) for coloring outside the lines and using too many colors on my Easter bunny art assignment (really, I’m not making this up).
She grabbed my arm and marched me around the classroom pointing out how Billy, Staci and the gang were carefully creating monotone yellow and brown bunnies (which was the “right” way to do it).
Upon recovering from the trauma of being singled out as a “wrongful color-er of rabbits”, I continued to distance myself from my conventional counterparts, venturing further off the beaten path throughout my formative years.
Today, I continue blazing my own trail specializing in composite images and creative retouching. Now, I’m hired for my ability to creatively color outside the lines, adding that “something extra” beyond merely completing the assignment as instructed.
