I'm a figurative artist, professional illustrator, and teacher. For nine years I 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'm interested in how shapes 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. I love studying the technical aspects of drawing and figuring out how to convey meaning.
I started teaching classes in the fall of 2017. My passion for drawing education comes from having some wonderful teachers: Karl Gnass, Will Weston, Amanda Jolly, Mark McDonnell, Alex Topette, Steve Brown, Nathan Fowkes, Kevin Chen, Ray Bustos, and Stephen Silver.
