Artist's Resume

This resume covers my creative work when I was living on the West Coast, and is intended only to show my level of involvement in a decade-long fine art career, from 1992-2001. Since moving to New York, I have sought work as an illustrator, rather than exhibiting as a "fine" artist. 


In New York, I have shown work in a gallery setting only as a faculty member at the Cooper Union for Arts and Sciences in 2003, and at FIT in the Master of Arts in Illustration exhibit in 2010.
