Overview

I have been chosen in American Illustration, Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles Illustration West, Awarded in Alternative Pick Awards, and the International Luerzer’s Archive’s “200 Best Illustrators Worldwide” Biennial. My work stands out with color & texture and is conceptually thought provoking. I have worked in the editorial and advertising markets. I am a consummate professional with great communication skills.

MY PROCESS - I like to collaborate with my clients defining the brief and strategizing the creative first. After defining the brief with the client, I create numerous sketch concepts to hone in on the main ideas. Working with the client to finalize the concepts, I create the final pieces digitally. All final illustrations are then sent to the client for final approval. I believe good communication is key to getting the best results.
