I began my career as a professional illustrator almost 30 years ago. I started off in advertising and design and quickly graduated to full time illustration and eventually to owning and operating my own business. Aside from illustration and design I am an instructor at Wake Technical Community College where I teach Adobe Illustrator, Photshop and InDesign. These are also the programs I use on a daily basis to keep my business competitive and running smoothly. Without them I would have a very difficult time making a living as an artist.
