Hi there! I make critters! Let me elaborate. I am an artist with a lifelong fascination for the creations of mother nature, namely the variety of animal species, extant or otherwise, that populate(d) the planet we live on, and the science-y goodness of studying the hows and whys of their forms and behaviors. I am also a lover of fantasy, mythology, magic, and charming storybook-esque whimsy. Somewhere in my life journey I decided to roll all that together and become a creature artist, based in reality and science but with a strong fantastical slant, as well as a fantasy illustrator for whatever applications people can come up with. I am also a trained animator with a BFA in Media Arts & Animation, and thus can bring any of these creations to life if need be.
