FIRST, please allow me to acknowledge my Awesome wife, Denise.
Without her steadfast encouragement, faith and support this venture would NEVER be possible!
If you'd like to get to know me, that's something I prefer to do in Person, over a coffee!
If you want to learn more about my professional and historical background,
feel free to check out my Blurb "About the Creator," FB Page, and LinkedIn TABS (top right of the Site.)
HERE, I'd like to focus less on my "work" history, and more on the pure, heartfelt Passion
that gets me excited to leap out of bed in the morning - ART!
It's a beautiful, limitless, flexible medium, that encapsulates So much MORE than just a physical form of Creative work!
I have been experimenting with multiple mediums as an artist for as long as I can remember!
For me, ART has become a unique, deep, Soul-rooted, meaningful, EXPRESSION,
the united Culmination of Artistic Vision, Ability, and Training, (at Art Instruction Schools, MN)
combined with a Lifetime of experiences and related lessons!
I’ve worked very hard to capture my interests and musings, and I Love sharing those thoughts with Kindred souls .
My INSPIRATION comes from personal/professional experiences, deep imagination, fantastic environments, creatures and scenarios that God has created, mixed with diverse cultural nuances from around the world.
I especially have a heart for Children, innocent, pure, positive, fun-loving, and wide open to learning.
Each child represents our future as a species, and carries the hope for a "better" Humanity.
That's why I tailor my Captain CHOO Series towards teaching Children valuable life lessons early on,
in order to help & encourage them, and maximize their potential and chance for success!
Even though my Creations have evolved into a labour of Love that simply gives ME joy,
my work has been very well received by buyers and critics alike; a fact I am humbled by, and grateful for.
I am currently seeking long-term collaboration with an Agent/Publisher
who could benefit from a professional quality Author AND Illustrator of Young Children's Fiction books,
Target Age 3-8, in 8"*10" Trade book format!
If you would like to talk about working together,
or if you have a specific project you would like to propose,
please do not hesitate to contact me.
