"Who dares to teach must never cease to learn."
John Cotton Dana.
My attraction to the arts stems from my passion for creation - whether it be stories, sketches, sculpture, music or multimedia graphics. As a teacher and artist I consider it my path to always be learning and expanding my knowledge.
I want to work with writers, game designers or CG animation to use my artistic skills to bring others ideas to visual fruition. I have created concept art and hundreds of pages for my own graphic novel projects, but feel like my growth necessitates working with a team of creators for several years. The more I learn, the more I find I have to learn, and there is a much wider field of experience that is difficult to explore from the confines of one's own ideas and imagination.
A couple of my favorite artists are Amy Reeder Hadley and J.H. Williams III, and my favored genres are fantasy, steam punk, and historical fiction.
