Today the Internet is bigger an better than ever and your competition is doing everything they can to get ahead. You should too! We create web sites that uniquely represent you and your company. Unlike many of our competitors we don't create your site using ready made templates or clip art, we create your site graphics and images from scratch, assuring that your site does not look like everyone else's.

We can establish your presence on the world wide web, and show you how to put your best foot forward in an ever changing world market. From start to finish and even in between we are here to be sure that your site is always at its best.

We even offer Internet web site hosting, ensuring your site is online and available to your clients when they need it.


As you can probably tell from this site, my passions include fine airplanes and automobiles. I have always been fascinated by the art of design, the color, the speed and the history that surrounds these amazing machines of land and air.

It has been my great privilege to have my work included in the collections of aviation, automotive and racing enthusiasts around the globe, as well as being the focus of many one man and gallery shows, including exhibitions at the 19th and 20th annual Santa Barbara Concourse d' Elegance, and the 1996 Racer Magazine anniversary party at the Grand Prix of Long Beach.

In my Art Galleries here on the web you can find some of my limited edition lithographs, prints, posters, and originals, as well as some of my original commissioned works.

For a closer look at my aviation photography, please be sure to check out SLICKPIXELS.COM


Some of our unique services includes painting "nose art" on vintage and military aircraft. We have an extensive background in creating the paint schemes, striping and murals on show winning cars and hot rods and have created many liveries for racing teams and drivers.

We have some samples of these on this site so you can get a closer look, but if you have questions about your project, please contact us today, we look forward to hearing from you.
