me

I am an illustrator living in Burlington Vermont 

Largely self taught, I find inspiration in comic books, skateboard graphics, punk rock fanzines and the natural world 

My work reflects the medium.
Most pieces start with a traditional drawing that are then transformed using a variety of methods unique to digital art

I strive to create works both dynamic and balanced while meeting the particular needs of the commission at hand
