Artist & Colorist
Hi! I was born and raised in Ketchikan, Alaska and have been creating art ever since I realized I could use crayons to draw technicolor mermaids. These days my medium of choice has moved away from crayons and is usually digital. I use a Wacom Cintiq and Adobe Photoshop for my digital illustration and coloring work, and I often use Photoshop when planning artwork in traditional mediums. I enjoy experimenting in many different creative areas and have tried everything from photography to relief printing. I like the way that the techniques from different mediums of artwork can feed back into each other to create new ways of approaching my art.
Over the years I have developed an artistic style that is often inspired by nature. One of my favorite things to do in my spare time is go hiking. I love the shapes and shadows that the natural world contains, and I try to let those elements fuel my use of strong shapes and rich colors even when I’m drawing or coloring a piece that isn’t obviously inspired by nature. Another thing I try to always put in my work is a sense of fun. Even in my darker pieces I try to always have a little touch of whimsy.
When I have free time that isn't being taken over with art you can find me drinking tea, playing video games, or hiking (rain or shine!).
