I am an artist, I only say that because I have worked hard to receive that distinction. I did my first professional caricatures for my art teacher in High School, she paid me a dollar per person. I made $50 off drawing the entire senior class at my high school, Roaring Fork High, in Carbondale, CO. A year later, After moving to Denver I had a job as a caricature artist working for Elitch Gardens in Denver, CO. I stayed with Kaman's Art Shoppes for six years, training as a live caricature artist under award winning artists like Dino Casterline. I then became the lead artist and began to train other artists.
After my long stay with then Six Flags Elitch Gardens I began my freelance career circa 1997. I first started working for the Jazz Aspen/Snowmass festival as a live artist. Listened to world class artists while I drew, which is one of my favorite things to this day. I also had a summer with Casa Bonita, in which I broke all of there sales records. One day I drew about 70 people in 5 hours. I still have not broken that record of $700 in 5 hours.
I have been doing live art for parties such as, corporate, birthdays, special occasions such as a wedding, barmitzvah,
and holidays of all sorts. I have now been a professional caricature artist for 14 years.
