Tell Us About Yourself
I started doing Caricatures in 2004 as a hobby, and after a year of learning about the community I attended the 2005 convention where I got to meet and learn from many of my icons. It was there I met Tom Richmond and learned that he had a retail operation in Minnesota, about 6 hours from where I was from in Wisconsin. I moved up to the Twin Cities and worked for him for 3 summers while honing my skills. In that Time I also spent a couple winters down in Orlando FL with The Fasen family, working at their operation out at Universal Studios. Under the exceptional guidance of artists like Tom and Glenn Ferguson, I loved my educational years. Close after that I looked to broaden my artistic understanding and knowledge base, I moved to southern California to attend a classical atelier art school. I studied fine art there for 2 years, and did caricatures as a day job for Kaman's Art. In the years since I have continued to do Live caricature, but enjoy varying my pursuits with concept art, oil painting and travel.
Caricature was my first love, and my gateway into my creative self.
