Fine Art Giclée Prints and Custom Designs

Biography
A little background: I graduated from the Philadelphia College of Art (now The University of the Arts) with a BFA in graphic design and a minor in painting. I worked as a designer and art director at a number of advertising agencies, publications and publishing companies on both the East and West coast before founding Fifth Street Design, a full service design agency located in Berkeley, CA, in 1985. For over twenty years FSD produced award-winning marketing materials for a wide range of clients. I now work out of my home studio in Napa County. While continuing to design marketing materials for select clients, I now devote the bulk of my time and design skill toward creating original graphic art prints.

Ever since studying photography in college I’ve always been an avid photographer. As a graphic designer I often utilized my photography in my commercial design work. Many of my photographs have been published in books, ads and marketing materials. Over the years I’ve built up an impressive catalog of images that are finding their way into some of the prints I’m creating. My work always begins with a photographic image. This can be in the form of a black & white negative or print, a color print or transparency, or a digital image. I am never content to reproduce exactly what my camera has captured. I try to emphasize the mood of the image by altering color and bringing out texture. Through a variety of scanning and image editing techniques I may montage images together or hand-color a black & white image. My color palette ranges from subtle to psychedelic. I use my imagination and computer skills to turn ordinary images into artwork. I try to create unique images that you won’t see anywhere else. I call the prints I create, “Photo-Graphic” art. All my prints are produced with archival inks on archival papers by the Giclée printing method on state-of-the-art Epson 9900 or HP Z6100 printers.

I hope you like the images I’ve attached here and will want to see more examples of the work I am producing. I look forward to hearing back from you.
