Overview

My specialized skills are in drawing creatures and animals - ungulates in particular - and creating ethereal atmosphere inspired by nostalgic stories and fairy tales. I love working with storytellers to help bring their visions to life in vibrant illustrations. In addition to full-color paintings, I also can do drawings and vignettes in black and white or color.
