Physical Media (sculpture, oil painting, sketches on paper, etc.);Performance;Writing
Original hand drawn illustrations (without utilizing any computer graphics, software or digital work). I specialize in children’s book illustrations, erotic illustrations, greeting cards, cartoons, silhouettes, portraiture and landscapes. I do portraiture in charcoal, and landscapes in acrylic. I work primarily in pencil, charcoal, India Ink, pen, water color and Goache on paper or on Crescent Illustration Boards.
I also write erotic stories, children stories and fiction. I performed on stage in comedy plays and musicals.
