Hello!

"My goal for every illustration is to use the character's eyes to really engage the viewer. That is, by far, my favorite challenge. "

I am an illustrator and gallery artist currently living in Louisiana, USA working primarily with chalk pastel. I love creating illustrations for the horror and fantasy genre, often with a dark romanticism undertone. My work has been published in Spectrum Fantasy Art Annual 22, 23, 24, and 25, Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, Infected by Art Vol 4 and 5, and others. Clients include Boom! Publishing, Lindstrom LLC., Hackle TV, ArtOrder, and more. I've done licensed work for Jim Henson Company, Adult Swim, Netflix, Focus Features, Archie Comics, and Monty Python.
