About Me

My Background

I was born by the river, or as we here in the South say, riv-ah ! My wife really teases me when I say that. But I was born by the Yazoo River in Greenwood, Mississippi! Right smack-dab in the middle of the birth place of the blues, the Mississippi Delta!  I had everything I needed there: a pencil, a piece of paper and a long-winded Baptist preacher.


My Medium

Early on, I used traditional art materials for my illustrations, like transparent watercolor, but these days I work digitally. However, for my fine art projects, it's back to the watercolor. It's good to bounce between the two.

My Inspiration

I rely on human nature to inspire me. My characters have universal themes to help make them more excepting to the reader. Then, you throw an animal into the story that has human qualities and the story can go anywhere! As an artist, I feel that illustrations in children's picture books have no limits.

My Blog

On occasion I'll have a few thoughts to let out.  Check out my blog to see what's up.
