Jazz Festival


I love jazz music and especially hearing good performers live outdoors at a summer concert. I have had the pleasure of creating the art for the Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival since 2003. It’s been a rewarding challenge to come up with a new image to represent the festival each year. Here is this year’s poster and a couple of the t-shirts.

New Textural Digital Images



I usually create images digitally with solid color, but recently have been adding texture and a painterly quality to my digital illustration. I love how it looks. These are “Summer” and “Winter” of four seasonal book illustrations I have done (you can see the other two seasons on my website). This series is my newest using this technique.

Allegory




I am intrigued by the idea of representing nature as human in spirit and my recent personal paintings are inspired by allegory and myth.
