I’ve been interested in painting and drawing since I was a teen. I began practicing my craft in the mid 70’s and towards the end of my tour of duty in the U.S. Coast Guard, I was commissioned to produce a painting for a high-ranking USCG officer as a retirement present. The response the painting received at it’s unveiling ceremony proved to be the catalyst for for me to pursue the study of art at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.

After taking a studio course in screen printing, I started creating small batches of one color t-shirts for local events. The demand for more shirts increased over time and lead me to start my own screen printing business. This company evolved over the years and has been involved in many aspects of the printing industry, growing from apparel to advertising specialties to industrial applications. During this time I made the transition from creating my graphic designs with pen and ink to the modern day medium of Photoshop.

Due to health concerns I sold the business in 2002 and now concentrate on producing graphic designs for sale online. My along with it’s companion etsy shop are a new venture that specializes in pin back button designs featuring my work. I hope you will take the time to look around and please bookmark this shop as I will be adding new stuff daily.

Message from the Boss

Having spent 35 years in the graphics industry, I now enjoy the arts as a self-employed, home office hybrid. While I spend quite a bit of time developing the web, my main energies are spent pushing pixels for delivery on t-shirts, gift items and now with roundwords, the design and retailing of of 2¼ and 1 inch buttons. Every button on this site has been my brain child. If you place an order, you can rest assured of getting a great product as I'm involved in every step of it's creation from design to shipping.

I personally guarantee you 100% satisfaction with any purchase from our studio or I will see that you get a complete refund. Please take some time and look around as new items are added frequently. There is something of interest for everyone within these pages.
