I’m an experienced educational computer game artist and a children’s book illustrator and have done everything from creating tiny icons as game assets—to designing, animating and illustrating educational games—I also paint in acrylic.  I love to sketch everyone’s thoughts in meetings and to work as a team to come up with a great end product.  I work well under pressure and have developed a thick skin.  Whatever task is sent my way, I’ll do my best to get the job done well and on-time.  Please visit www.brightillustration.com to review my on-line portfolio!

 

In contrast to life as an artist, I’m also an athlete who still competes; playing volleyball both on the beach and indoor.  I love to hike, paddle, garden and spend time with my dog.
