Welcome to my Online Artist Portfolio.

I am not a famous artist but I have worked for some. Working on a team for Vito Acconci, art directing a music video for Bruce Springsteen and working side by side with Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise on their directorial debus are a few of the most notable ones.

Although I have made my living at times doing arts and crafts most of what I would call my "pure art" or "fine art", artworks like drawing painting and sculpting has been for enjoyment and self satisfaction or for gifts for friends and relatives.

I have produced a lot of art and crafts over the years; most has gone the way of the winds. I gathered up what I could to represent my skills in this gallery, I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for visiting my online artist portfolio. Don Smith
