Professional Experience

Working in pen and ink, acrylic, watercolor, and digital format, I have created dynamic illustrations for a wide variety of projects. Notably I have created interior illustrations for published books, editorial and portrait illustrations for magazines, product illustrations, and concept art. I have successfully collaborated with a number of different clients and adapted my personal style to meet their individual creative goals. I am a flexible and versatile illustrator who can create high quality illustrations that would be successful with any market or target audience.
