I have worked as a freelance illustrator and graphic artist since finishing Commercial Art school at Spokane Falls Community College in 1979.
I have worked at Palomar College as a graphic artist/illustrator since 2001 for their in-house Print Services Department and have worked on a variety of projects from brochures to multi-page programs and catalogs.
From 1995 to 2001, I worked for North County Graphics as an assistant to John Alesi doing computer graphics and pastel/colored pencil medical illustrations. I also progressed to digital illustrations and graphics as we utilized desktop publishing.These projects were for personal injury attorneys and would be used as exhibits in court.
I obtained some skills in medical illustration working for the Washington State Univ. Biomedical Unit as a financial aid student and then hourly employee when I was studying fine arts there from 1979 to 1982.
Since 1996 I have taken classes at Palomar College where I gained the digital arts skills to transition from old school paste up and hand done illustration.
