I have been an independent artist since 2008 and I love what I do. My work has appeared on books, magazines and much more. Currently I work out my studio illustrating stories inspired by nature, folklore and fairytales. Most of my free time is spent either with my nose in a book, chasing after bugs or romping through moss.
I spent my childhood exploring crafty projects such as sewing clothes for my troll dolls and bedazzling fanny packs, which evolved into making comics during class in high school. My crafty tendencies ended me up at art school where I spent the next decade nerding out on the Golden Age of Illustration and discovering my favorite artists like Gustaf Tenggren and Arthur Rackham. After art school I moved to Los Angeles to restore paintings and to fulfill my art school fantasies of getting up close and personal with some of the great paintings of all time. In my spare time, I worked my ass off as an freelance artist. In addition to making illustration assignments, a group of art school colleagues (including myself), curated several pop-up gallery shows in Los Angeles and New York.
In 2015, I had my fill of the big city and moved back to my home state of Arizona to focus all my attention on painting as an independent artist -- in the meantime, I make a living as an office coordinator (and sometimes graphic designer) at a local sticker shop. When I am not drawing or painting, you'll find me at the library or coffee shop with my nose in a book or on a cloudy day, adventuring in the nearby woods with my sweetheart.
