I have a great website that has an about bio that you can find in my resume below.

I am always up for a challenge and I love to work in almost every medium available. I work with a lot of traditional mediums but I have done some work in digital as well. I love traditional because I have to be very careful when I work, and I love the making of it from a blank surface to a vivid finish.

I would love to work for you.
