Welcome...


At the start I would say that Disney artists played a big part in steering me towards a career in art. I studied graphic design in college and began working in store display, and then worked in an art department at an air force base. Later, I learned the computer, working as a free-lance graphic designer in a medical center. Got into landscapes and wildlife painting, and displayed my work in a gallery in Carmel and other locations in California. I developed a stylized and realistic style of painting. The stylized version worked well with snow scenes for Christmas cards, and I had designs published by different greeting card publishers. The landscape and wildlife realistic style worked well in galleries and some of my paintings were made into art prints by an art publisher.

Images that are now in my Cornucopia3D portfolio are very similar to my landscape and wildlife painting style. I have a certain unique look to my images when compared to other Vue artists because I have a very different approach to using Vue than how its usually done.

I have learned a lot about lighting in landscapes from living in the Southern California Mountains for many years, surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest and deserts. I duplicated a certain early morning light that I like in Vue, and then used that same light setting on all my images that are in my Cornucopia3D portfolio.

I'm interested in a well designed realistic representational style of the western United States.
I like the land features and coastline of the western part of the United States, with it's mountains, streams, lakes, deserts and rocky coastline and most of all, its rocks.
