Brief Summary
Using both traditional media (pencil, watercolor, pastel) and digital processes, I create illustrations and fine art with an affinity for mystery, horror, and the odd. My fine art consists of architectural studies, landscapes, and portraits that focus on the surprising beauty I find in life, which often presents itself in unexpected ways.
