I'm a freelance illustrator and a Kendall College of Art and Design graduate currently living in Michigan. My work ranges from rendered paintings in watercolor, to still-lifes in pastel, to film storyboards, to more comic-style illustrations in digital or traditional colors. Needless to say, my work is diverse. My intention for use of this blog is to display my artwork in a professional manner and to bring in commission-based business. Essentially, this is my online portfolio. Many illustrators are using blogs these days, and needing a presence for myself, this will hopefully work for me as well. So I encourage you to watch regularly for postings of artwork and perhaps be compelled to call on my services for a commission. Keep in mind that I work in a variety of mediums and subjects, so do not hesitate to ask for something that you might not see here. Just contact me at, my work e-mail and my Paypal account.

Read my illustration commissions post as a starting point to get an idea of the potential price range.

SAC Fall '10 class schedule

It occurred to me that it might encourage more parents to sign-up their children for art lessons at the Shiawassee Arts Center, at least perhaps those who happen to follow along online, if the schedule was made available. There are other instructors and Fall classes available, certainly, however here I'll only include the courses that will be taught by myself. The rest can be read on the Arts Center's website.

Classes are available to age groups Kindergarten through 3rd Grade from 1 PM - 2:15 PM, then 4th through 8th Grade from 2:30 PM - 3:45 PM. Each is held on a Saturday afternoon, since we keep in mind the active school season. The cost is twelve dollars per class, but SAC members have a reduced rate of ten dollars. Annual student membership is fifteen dollars, for those who are interested. Contact Linda Ruehle at to sign up for Fall classes or Arts Center membership.

And now, here are the available Fall '10 children's art classes, instructed by myself:

September 25th - Symmetrical Aliens
"Extraterrestrial special, out of this world art! Learn about symmetry."

October 2nd - Watercolor Sunflowers on Rice Paper
"Big & Bold."

October 9th - Downtown Architectural Drawing
"We will be walking downtown, weather permitting. SAC, inside if not."

November 20th - Watercolor Portraiture
"Bring a good reference photo to work from."

November 27th - Illustrating Children's Books
"Be it The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Grimm Brothers' fairy tales, or your own short story." (one class only, 1 PM-2:30 PM - $15 Member/$17 Non-member)
