I'm a figurative artist, professional illustrator, and teacher. For the past ten years I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work as a full time in-house illustrator designing collectors pins for clients such as Hard Rock Cafe and Disney.  I now sell products with my own designs, do freelance illustration, and teach figure drawing.

I love studying the technical aspects of drawing.  I'm interested in the shapes that show character, how they change as they turn in space, how they fit together, how they are influenced by weight and movement, and how they tell stories.

My passion for drawing education comes from having some wonderful teachers: Karl Gnass, Will Weston, Amanda Jolly, Mark McDonnell, Alex Topette, Steve Brown, Nathan FowkesKevin Chen, Ray Bustos, and Stephen Silver.
