The Squid Art Gallery was initially created as a showcase for my original artwork when I worked at Adobe Systems and they began focusing on developing products for the web design market in the mid-90’s. My creations featured Squid, my Abyssinian cat of nearly 12 years. He was not only a wonderful pet, but a terrific inspiration for my artistic endeavors. He is the subject of many the pieces in the "Squid Art" gallery.
The art in the Squid Gallery continues to grow as I have new "models": Bubbles, Mango and Peaches, who are featured in more current pieces. My art and photography raise funds for many animal related charities. In addition to featuring my pets in my compositions, I have focused on wildlife and landscape photography.
My photography of African wildlife and landscapes has been shown at the G2 Gallery in Venice, CA as part of the "Friend or Fo-to" exhibit.
I have created books of my photography and conduct photography workshops.
Since I left Adobe Systems over 10 years ago, I have been an Adobe Certified Instructor providing consulting and training on these programs as well as doing freelance graphic design and production work.
Please enjoy your visit to the gallery and contact me if you are interested in my art or improving your skills in the
Adobe Systems Creative Suite applications or as a photographer.
