Signature Arts

From childhood, I have created all types of artwork for my own enjoyment.  In the mid 80’s, while working full-time as a photo retoucher and B/W lab technician, I returned to school part-time, completing my BA from the University of Montana in 1993.  In 1997, hoping to pursue art full-time I moved to St. Louis, MO, purchased and rehabbed a building with friends and opened Signature Arts (murals, portraits, photo retouching, graphic design and custom framing).  Initially supplementing artistic income with part-time construction work, in 2004 the business became self-supporting.     

     As an artist, I do not work exclusively in any particular style or medium and have produced some of my best work in response to the constraints and demands of various commissions.  I have been fortunate in securing a wide range of commissions, from murals, signs, posters, and logos, to portraits and sculptures that have challenged me to stretch as an artist in both imagination and technique.
