My strength is my ability to assess a job quickly and know how to go about completing it with attention to detail, on time and within budget. I have always had satisfied clients because I do not accept jobs I do not feel qualified to do. I am very creative while being practical, organized, and easy to work with. When I am hired for a job, I know I am working for that person. They are the art director on their project. It is my job to bring to fruition their vision. When they are happy, I am happy. This is not a hobby for me. It is my livelihood and my clients appreciate knowing that I have given my personal best to every piece of artwork that leaves my studio.
I have over 30 years experience at providing quality original artwork for individuals and businesses. After receiving a B.F.A. degree in Advertising Design, I worked for 5 years as an illustrator at Tinker Air Force Base and was awarded a Sustained Superior Award. While at Tinker, I provided graphic support in the form of flyers, posters, menus, photographs, paintings, etc. Since leaving Tinker in 1988, I have been self-employed as a fine artist, illustrator, and author. As a freelancer, I have done portraits, logos, product illustrations, landscape and wildlife paintings, etc. in pastel, oil, acrylic, pencil, pen & ink and digital graphics. I have self-published three books and more than 100 eBooks. It is my goal to bring my experience and quality workmanship to my clients at Guru. I only bid on projects that I know I am capable of doing an excellent job on and can bring them in on time and within budget. Let me help you turn your ideas into reality.
