Bachelor of Fine Arts
I have always found joy in creating!Someone once asked me when I began to draw? To be honest, I can't remember a time that drawing hasn't been part of my life. I feel like I am able to visualize the image that I am creating. I think to some degree we can all do that. We all have an idea of what we want something to look like, but not everyone can bring that image to fruition.I remember my kindergarten teacher asking if she could have one of my earliest paintings of a duck. We had recently visited my grandfather's farm and I knew for the first time, that although we all painted something, my painting stood out compared to the rest. I still consider that my first SALE!After the completion of my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, I started my career in teaching. I have had the privilege of meeting so many young artists and having some small part in their artistic development. My wife and I have been blessed with a wonderful family! We have four beautiful children that keep us busy!
I love to bring new ideas to life!
This work can be in black and white or full colour! I can produce single images or multiple images for use in children's book illustrations.
Concept art is crucial to the develop of any story!
I was hired to create concept art for a quirky little droid named 'Optic'. It is amazing to see a drawing translate into a three dimensional design!
Concept work is so fascinating because an idea grows and develops over time. I spent many hours researching various quadcopters, learning how they work and what details were required. Optic has special CGI features that allow him to move from standard mode into battle mode!
The evil droids (see last image) have a few secrets of their own! I decided to make these two battle droids morph from a simple sphere into an oval that splits apart! I really enjoyed the process of creating these two!
Due to strict confidentiality agreements I am unable to release any further details at this time!
