I am first and foremost an illustrator. I am not ashamed to say it. I love storytelling. To create a world unto itself is uniquely the realm of the artist whether with the written word or in the visual medium. If I am interpreting another artists’ ideas or creating my own this is all part of the process. I love the art of characterizations and to be able to capture that nuance of feelings in a face or gesture. To layer humor with the macabre or poignancy with sentiment. My illustrations are central to how I think and feel as an artist.
