Mission

As a multidisciplinary professor of art & technology, I emphasize the use of both traditional and digital methods to create engaging contemporary art work for use in both the fine art and commercial art fields. At the same time, I stress the importance of discovering and developing individual style, intrepretation, and concept to parallel mastering materials and process.

Don't take my word for it. Take a look at some amazing student work.
