His art work has hung in the High Museum and Museum of Design in Atlanta and the Louvre in Paris. He has exhibited with The New York Society of Illustrators and The New York Art Director’s Club. His first book, Beginnings, was chosen as one of the fifty books of the year by The American Institute of Graphic Arts.
