In addition to enjoying a successful career as a free-lance book cover artist, I love creating fine art images. I am now very excited about a new type of work I've been exploring that I call "Living Photos". This website is a showcase of that work along with a few of my paintings and fine art prints & photography. Please contact me with any inquiries.
LIVING PHOTOS & VIRTUAL VIEWS: While I love being a photographer and illustrator, I have always felt that my images were limited by their stillness. I desire to breathe life into these pictures by adding just a touch of movement to traditional photography. I hope to mesmerize people with the simplicity of images in motion and reduce the stress of everyday life with visually beautiful and relaxing images.
BOOK COVER PRINTS With each book cover project I work on, I do my best to create an image that conveys a time and place while evoking the mood and the essence of the story without giving too much away. It is important to me that the reader has the opportunity to fill in the details with their own imagination. A few years ago I was asked if I would sell a print of one of my book cover images. I thought it was an interesting idea so I made a series of limited edition prints of several of my favorite covers. You can see a few of these prints here on the site. More of my book cover projects can be seen at: www.lillimages.com
TRADITIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY & PAINTING: As a child, I grew up loving to paint and draw. That was my way of capturing the beauty of the natural world around me. I studied illustration at Rhode Island School of Design, and created a unique style that combined photography and illustration that seemed well suited for book jackets. Recently, I have decided to revisit my roots of traditional painting and photography in a fine art venue.
