My Style

My style is a blending of traditional painting and illustration.  Years ago I studied with book illustrator and writer, Uri Schulevitz in New York.  What I learned from him was the importance of telling a story in your drawings.  He believed the picture has to stand alone and the words have to stand alone.  When they are put together they make a dynamic that people can remember.  He made me aware of how storytelling works.  This is my challenge and my style.

Two crows is a scratchboard drawing I did a few years ago.  I think they tell a cool story.
