Artist & Illustrator
From 1985 – present I have worked as a freelance Artist and Illustrator. My work has been shown in various venues and formats including but not limited to: boutiques, coffee houses, college campuses, festivals, galleries, retail shops, music venues, and fund-raising benefit shows on both the East and West Coasts of the USA.
Education: BFA, Philadelphia Art Institute
Commercial work history:

Asst.Mgr : Pearl Art (NJ) 1987-1990
Commercial Illustration: LP Illustrator for JL America Recordings from 1992-1994.

Printed material, ads and published illustrative works appear in: Heart of the Goddess, Kerrang!, Launchpad Press, Metal Edge Magazine, (on the not-so-commercial front) various 80’s-90’s underground music fanzines in the US and abroad.
While early past works were exhibited in Philadelphia, PA, NJ, NY, MD, and DE. In late 1999, I relocated from NJ to CA and have actively been a part of the local San Diego art scene as of 2003.
I have recently just moved back East. This time to the solace of the North GA Mountains, to be with my Fiancee Joseph Michael Linsner. Although, I still remain an active member of the So Cal artistic community, and will continue to show in the Southern CA region. My work can be purchased at gallery shows, conventions, online at my etsy store, or by directly contacting me via email. lightisthenewdark AT gmail DOT com
Artwork may be viewed at the current shows and events listed, or LeStat’s in San Diego year-round, where fine art prints as well as originals are sold at their retail counter. I participate in the Art Around Adams events annually, and the South Park Walkabouts. Any events and art shows in the Southern CA region, as well as appearances are TBA or scheduled as announced on my upcoming shows page.
