Welcome to
Laguna Cowpoke Design

 I am a photo-based digital artist. I use my photography and the "digital darkroom" to create my art.  Enjoy!


My Background

I am an ARTIST and PHOTOGRAPHER living in Southern California.  I love taking my photos and discovering the possibilities of the digital darkroom - basically painting with the pixels in my digital images.  As a result, I have taken my photography to a whole new level of artistic expression.

I’ve had my artwork exhibited throughout Southern California, including the San Diego Art Institute and the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art.  My pieces have also been shown in Manhattan, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and at Boise State University, where one critic described my art as being “the most comical and simultaneously heartbreaking work in the show”.

I exhibit each summer at the Sawdust Art Festival in Laguna Beach, California.

Custom Pet Portraits

Simply put, my pet portraits are digital paintings from photographs: I use photos you provide, along with digital brush work  and other digital artistic techniques to capture your pet's unique personality.

My hope is that my custom pet portraits will make you smile, laugh and cherish them for years to come.
