I am one of the original artists whose dot portraits have appeared in the pages of The Wall Street Journal for many years. Yes, the familiar, iconic “dot” drawings in The Wall Street Journal are made by actual people, using actual pens, ink, and paper. Surprised? So 19th Century! The intricate style, which evokes the look of engravings, is emblematic of the care and precision I bring to every drawing.

A senior “hedcut” illustrator, on staff since 1984, I have also created many drawings for private clients, including design agencies and corporations, as well as individuals who wish to mark a special event (birthdays, anniversaries) with an original dot portrait. I have drawn everything: pit bulls, dust mites, medical procedures, Nelson Mandela, sock monkeys, roses, castles, and a guy in a bear suit. My work is included in the National Portrait Gallery of The Smithsonian Institution as part of their collection of portraits by artists of The Wall Street Journal. Profiles or mentions of me and my award-winning work as a dot illustrator have appeared on network news programs in New York and Boston, as well as in publications including The New York Times, The New Yorker, Working Woman, Advertising Age, and The Star-Ledger.
