I have been drawing since early childhood, and have never slowed down since. In college I discovered Photoshop and have developed a loving relationship with it for creating and adding finishing touches to my illustrations, but my ultimate passion is pencil and paper as it's such a simple combo that can do so much. I’m the author and illustrator of the published children’s book “The Tail of Gigi”, and have recently done digital paintings for several clients. If you're looking for charming designs with sharp color schemes and top-notch character expressions, you've come to the right place.
