About the Artist

My professional career as an Illustrator &

Graphic Designer started in New York City in 1981.

I had a passion for art ever since I could hold a crayon.
I am now Head Hog of Pig Pen Studios Inc, located in Port Washington, New York. My studio creates brands and packaging for some of the top retailers in the food and toy industry.
My career as a fine artist was challenged due to my busy schedule, but now I am finding the the time to do both.

To keep my artistic paint and drawing skills in check I create custom pet portraits by commission.

I love all animals and own or have owned many pets  including a blue and gold macaw, a 35 yr old turtle, 120 reef tank with many salt water fish, 3 dogs - cavalier, maltese and a cockatoo.
