I'm a fantastic artist to work with. Tell me about your vision!

I have been creating custom artworks to fit a client's idea for over 8 years as a freelance illustrator. My specialty is to create images for stories that capture a key narrative moment. The work I do typically involves an important background or environmental element, which relates to characters in the story.

The process I use to work with writers is to read their work and study it. Then, depending on the type of project, I will provide a series of sketches to visualize the client's idea. With their feedback I then create a final drawing. Once the final drawing is reviewed I then proceed to a finished painting. I use photography, 3D modelling, and painting to complete most of my images.

If you have need of an illustrator and feel my style would work well for your idea, please contact me so we can discuss you vision!
