As a wildlife artist and marine illustrator, I enjoy a rare experience – someone who truly loves to go to work. Many years as a fishing guide and sportsman led me to the most rewarding career anyone could ask for. As a true Florida native, I’ve spent years fishing, hunting, guiding and exploring the wild places many people never see. After a construction accident in 1993, I had to make a career change. We sold our home in Naples and moved to Sarasota, and in 1998, I graduated from the Ringling College of Art & Design with a degree in Illustration. Since that time, I‘ve focused on illustrating saltwater game fish onto navigational charts. The ability to match species with location was an instant success. Some of my clients include Bass Pro Shops, Coastal Conservation Association- Florida, Texas and Alabama, Century Boats/Yamaha, Hell’s Bay Boatworks, Bertram Yachts, as well as tournaments and fundraising events.
