My life with kitties is never dull. I never thought I would be doing paintings of cats. After we got our first cat, Miss Joshua, many ideas began to evolve. She inspired a whole new direction in my work. Up to that point, I was primarily focused on creating fantasy art. My background is illustration, art direction and game design. I'm most known for my painting and art direction on the "Mystery Case Files" series of hidden object / adventure games published by Big Fish Games.
My work has been published by major corporations such as Disney, Pixar, Warner Brothers, DreamWorks, EA Games, Blizzard/Activision, Big Fish Games, American Airlines, Texas Instruments, Pepsi-cola, Frito-lay and Bic pens.
I spend most of my time painting images of my world inspired by my cats. My work evolved from strong influences of Art Nouveau, Classical Realism, and a well developed sense of childlike Haynie wonder. Stories emerge as I work usually pointing to a symbolic message to inspire hope and faith.
