I work as a photographic and graphic artist because I love to create things.
I try to create things that will make people smile, laugh, scratch their heads and wonder,
or to view things in a different way.
I have a degree in Graphic Arts from Central Missouri State University, although the graphics
department had no computers at the time (late 70s). Fortunately, the rules of design aren't confined
to a computer program. I worked as a graphic artist (and/or musician) for the first five years after
college, and learned almost all the aspects of the graphics field. Then I became self-employed,
and learned much more.
As you've seen on this site, I've done a large variety of projects, from album covers to recording an album.
