I currently have my studio in Wyomissing PA. I chose the moniker Quarternative because I am quarter Pueblo Native American.

I graduated from Syracuse University with a BFA in Illustration and had some wonderful mentors such as Roger DeMuth and John Thompson.

My progression as an artist has evolved through the mediums of; pen and ink, watercolor, and gouache, until I figured out how to use the magical box called the computer. I have been specializing in vector designs since.

I am an avid sports fan and my art reflects this. I also enjoy pop-culture, Native American culture, urban city scapes, travel, nature, and history.

I believe illustration is a service to society, a way to express feelings and ideas by pictures, with infinite possibilities. I love teamworking, as well as listening and adapting myself to the client’s needs. To me is important commitment and ethic work. I also like to accept new challenges and create personal projects.
