Welcome to my portfolio website. I am a artist with a B.F.A. in animation from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Having worked with Photoshop and Painter for ten years, I have come to specialize in digital painting. My foundation is based on traditional illustration, which has been reinforced by intense study of anatomy in both life drawing and sculpture studios. This has also given me experience with conceptual maquette sculpture as well as mold making and casting. As an animation major, I have gained valuable insights on conveying form in motion and creating character designs that are both visually dynamic and functional. Likewise, I have learned about the animation production process and industry standard software, as well as the general pipeline of content from preproduction to post. My career goals include attaining a position as a conceptual designer for science fiction and fantasy themed projects, and working as a freelance digital artist.
