I enjoy working with other people, sharing ideas and solving problems.
Although I have a high opinion of my abilities, I can work within someone
else's style, rework existing art, or create original art to meet my client's
needs. I'm also comfortable handing art back and forth between other artists
in a cooperative creative process. I require fresh air and occasional
sunshine, and am a dedicated workhorse.
