Welcome my friends, and thank you for joining me in my online gallery. Art and design have been a lifelong passion of mine and, fortunately, it has been my life's work. I have been blessed with the opportunity to pursue this passion while designing for Hollywood's elite, royalty and some of the most interesting people in the world. Nothing, however, gives me more pride and pleasure than to be able to share my life and my work with you.
