About the Artist

First and foremost, I am a total nerd. Yep, I admit it, but I don't see that as a bad thing. I grew up with a love of video games, high fantasy, sci-fi, and when I was young I used to spend hours with tracing paper copying the art found in my player's guides. Drawing was reliving those great moments I would experience in my gaming, and as an adult it is something I never really grew out of.

For me, drawing is a meditative activity. It's like sitting down at a puzzle, and I'm always asking myself how to best solve it. The beautiful thing about linework is how easy it is to do but how tricky it is to master. Every time I feel that I have really nailed a face or an image, I find a dozen or more examples of how it could be done better, or with more detail, or from a more exciting perspective, and that fascinates me and continues to push me to get better. This site is more than just a space to sell myself and my work, but is also a reflection of what I have done right, where I can continue to improve, and act as a showcase where all my sketches and thumbnails reflect my thoughts as I continue to learn what works best in enhancing the final product.

If you like what you see and would like me to tell your story, then please reach out to me.
