Northern California is my canvas.
If organic is synonymous with being integrated and in-tune, my approach is organic in every sense. I design and create everything from illustrations, books, catalogs, packaging, signage of all types, and web sites, to store designs, landscape designs, color schemes, character designs, and identity programs. My canvas is the Walnut Creek area in particular, and the Diablo Valley and Northern California in general. I love it here and have lived here all my life. I have clients, customers, and partners throughout the area. I understand the area's vibrations and convert them into tangible pieces and products that benefit both the Client and the community. My services are varied, but whether they're used in unison or as part of a whole, they all come with the same promise of quality and intelligence.
The initial appointment is always free and all estimates are free.
Your project will receive my full attention. I will never hand over or outsource your project to a lesser or inadequate provider for any reason. I never compromise quality for time and I give my clients realistic schedules that accommodate their lives. I will always use the best and most appropriate materials available. I will always strive to use sustainable materials.

My mother ran an art gallery in Walnut Creek when I was growing up. I absorbed and learned so much from the artists and collectors that she worked with. I graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1984 - and those of you who know SFAI know how broad that education is. After a soul-killing three years working for Pacific Bell as a visual designer, I branched out on my own. I've been a successful self-employed artist and designer ever since. Although I'm geographically focused on Walnut Creek, the Diablo Valley, and Northern California, I have broad experience in commercial, municipal, academic, and residential projects throughout the country. I love my Clients, my family, and my friends. I thank you all for being part of my story and my life.
