With a diverse background in graphic design and publishing in my hometown of Rockford, I am the owner and my favorite boss at Lonesome Road Studio in northeastern LaSalle County. I’m a self-taught mixed media illustrator working primarily in marker, colored pencil and ink. I often incorporate hand-lettering into my work (I’m a font geek) which generally falls into two categories: food and people. Sometimes I enjoy the research as much as the creation, and every piece has a background story that I’m happy to share. In addition to The ArtBar I also exhibit in the Ottawa and LaSalle-Peru areas.
