I’m on the CCAC Board to… promote, support and spread awareness of art in our community. I want to share my passion of creation with others and hopefully inspire them to embrace their artistic endeavors.
My arts background includes… conceptual illustration, storyboarding and character design. I am primarily self-taught with a few years of college experience. I also have 5 years of graphic design experience, which I have since tailored to my digital art.
Whilst I am an illustrator, my heart has always lied in the narrative. I absolutely adore writing and pair that passion with my love of drawing by illustrating characters and the world that they live in. I’ve always written and sketched incessantly, and gaming has become my chief inspiration. Whether it be a fanart from a video game or a tale of my own creation, behind every character I draw is a detailed, rich history or narrative.
Having originally been an ink artist, I’ve always been drawn to the sharp lines, crunchy shapes and bold colors of graphic art, western comics and animation. However, as the years passed, the more I felt the limits of the medium and transitioned to become exclusively a digital artist.
Outside of the arts, I enjoy… reading books and articles, playing piano, doing archery, and more. When I am not brainstorming stories or sketching characters, I’m watching 80s movies, listening to music or playing video games. I love snuggling with my black cats, drinking green tea and collecting crystals.
