Over the past 6 years I have a taken a variety of studio classes to build a set of focused art skills. These classes have included Design Fundementals, Computer Graphic Design, and Illustration. Through my graphic design program I have been introduced to numerous programs and skills that have become indispensable to my workflow. I am comfortable in Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Maya, and Mudbox. I also have produced work using Premiere, InDesign, Z-Brush, and HTML and CSS programming. Still, I find that self education has become my most effective means of growth and I continue to take on challenges outside of my regular classwork.
Drawing is my primary focus and strongest ability. I love putting pencil to paper (or stylus to tablet) and bringing new life to my imagination. I have been doing so for as long as I can remember. My passion is animation (2D and 3D), and I enjoy studying motion and movement. I am mainly a character artist, and enjoy the challenge of making a new character to fit a situation. I am currently teaching myself 3D character creation and animation. The joy that comes from successfully going from an idea, to a drawing, to a moving 3D character is unrivaled.
My goal is to work in the field of 3D animation in games, movies, or television. Currently I am accepting contracts for freelance illustration and graphic design.
