I'm a mixed media artist, graphic artist and web designer, and I've recently relocated to my West Virginia mountain home. It was time. As you can see at left, in semi-retirement, I do a little bit of everything, including occasional pro bono display work for non-profits. I have over 25 years experience as an Art Director, and later, as owner of my own graphics studio, Conk Point Graphix, in Morehead City, NC [at the southern end of the Outer Banks on Carolina's Crystal Coast.]

Because I was working in a small regional market, my experience covers a wide variety of work: illustration, photography, catalog layout, color separating for screenprinting, webdesign for non-profit organizations, for small businesses and personal sites for artists. In the past related work has included some nationally-known clients such as Star Hardee's, Bridgestone Firestone, Sony Ericcson, Habitat for Humanity, NC Seafood Festival and Bojangle's Chicken and Biscuits. I've designed logos and tee shirts for small and large fishing tournaments, for local businesses and for major non-profit events such as Relay for Life.

Today I'm stilling working a bit for interesting new clients in north-central West Virginia. I love working and creating art and I have a lot of gratitude in my life. It's all good. Now if we could just get some a few art galleries in this Wild and Wonderful West Virginia county!
