Freelance Book Illustrator & Children's Book Illustrator

I believe artwork creates a direct line to our imaginations pulling the viewer into the story ultimately letting them fly free of their daily grind whenever they choose to get lost for a while. If an artist can bring out the child in the adult, and the adventurer in the child, then they have created that magic through the power of their artwork. This is what I strive for every time I put pen or brush to paper or canvas or any medium for that matter. For many years I have had the pleasure of creating magic for people in many different ways. To make someone happy with the work they have commissioned me to do, is my personal goal with every project I tackle, while enhancing their project they are hiring me to create for them. In short, I strive to make others' dreams come true through visually helping them tell their story.
