Mixed Media


 Artist County

Specializing now in unique pen & ink drawings, mostly in full color with watercolor added, mostly with a humorous approach. The drawings and paintings mostly capture the local daily life of the people and places of West Chester and surrounding areas of Chester County. I use a fun, entertaining high energy approach to the lines and colors, using captions to capture the thoughts and attitudes of the people and even the places and objects shown in the work. I have an extensive background as a comedy entertainer and caricaturist, and so I like to mix humor into much of the work. I am influenced by a wide variety of artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec and even cartoonist Robert Crumb.
