I have been a working artist as long as I can remember. I have designed costumes and puppets, as well as make-up, for television, theater, special events, film and still photography. I have also taught classes in art, costume design, puppetry and various theater arts, as well as written for children's theater and television. My work at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA has been seen worldwide. Although I rarely make puppets anymore, I regularly use those skills in my costume designs.
I have been painting custom pop art portraits by commission for the last 28 years, striving to always have a sense of humor in my artwork and bring a smile to the viewer. I work from photos, that I can shoot, or from existing ones. I can also paint from old family photos. My style of portrait is for those who want a lifelong keepsake that is full of color and joy.

As a costume designer/builder and stylist, I tend to lean towards a more colorful and whimsical style. Some of my clients include: Focus Brands, GPTV, Georgia Lottery, Macy's, The Olympics, WCW, various studio photographers, professional and College/High School Theaters, live industrial shows, television, as well as individuals for events.
As a make-up artist, I started in film and still photography and then moved on to theater with some special effects. Now, I work mostly with photographers or video. I also do make-up for special events, weddings, proms, Halloween and Cosplay conventions.
