About the Artist

photo by Mark McCourtcropI began drawing at a young age, thanks to encouragement from my grandfather, George Scirrotto. He loved to paint scenes in and around his home town of Philadelphia. His influence also inspired my brothers, Trevor and Jason, who are also artists. I studied art at West Chester University in the early 1990s. During that time, the university commissioned a series of four pen & ink illustrations depicting some of the original 19th century buildings on campus. That pretty much started the ball rolling. I explored many pen & ink techniques, and soon began adding color with pencils and water color. My first art-related job was working for a local graphic design studio illustrating new homes for real estate brochures. Today, the majority of my artwork is based around my love of classic automobiles. However, I enjoy keeping active in architectural rendering, train illustrations and pet portraits.

Thanks for visiting.
