My love of art started when I was young. I loved drawing, especially anatomy, oddly enough. When I was in high school I dabbled in screen printing during a graphic art class and really enjoyed it. I started doing very basic/raw designs for the high school athletic teams. After high school I attended The Art Institute of Pittsburgh where I got into comic book art and drawing comic book style art. After a short stint at my first attempt at college, reality (being an adult) set in and I quit drawing to find what I thought was a “life career”. I did not draw for about 10 years and that was upsetting to me. I found a job screen printing promotional products and that’s where my love of screen printing started again! Among my responsibilities was screen printing t-shirts. I loved it and did a fantastic job! My boss said “you should do it for a living!”
So with that I started my own small screen printing company and got a job at a big t-shirt printing company. I did both for a few years but it became too much so I sold my company and just worked at the printing company. I worked there for several years but still hadn’t found my ‘niche’. I really loved cars and racing and wanted to focus on that. So I left the printing company and started my own freelance graphic design company specializing in race art. It really took off. My freelance business is as strong as ever and while I am more focused in the motorsports apparel industry, my designs can be found on varying items as business t-shirts to toy product packaging.
