I read all my comments and appreciate every last one, even if I don't respond to all of them.

I am a fantasy illustrator who hails from the woods of southwestern Ohio, and I take my joy from being able to create new worlds and stories, telling of adventures in distant worlds and bringing unicorns and dragons to glittering life. I want to create a world in my work that the viewer can enter and engage in, a personal journey in each image.

I paint primarily with gouache -- a medium whose quick-drying and forgiving nature suits my style and patience. My favorite thing to do, however, is to sketch; I can get lost in lines for hours.

I'm currently working on writing and illustrating a story in my free time, as it's a project that encompasses the things I'm passionate about in art -- storytelling, painting and design.


I happen to be a goth that takes particular joy in unicorns and flowers, and I am also an avid gardener, ever surrounded by my ward of plants that I dote over. Among my other interests are hiking, reading and writing, amateur photography, design, and landscaping.

Goals of mine include building my own tiny home, going on adventures and climbing mountains around the world, and becoming a successful artist. I am a work in progress: fighting to make a place for myself in the world, and building up my confidence and experience brick by brick.

I am grateful for any critique or advice anyone has to offer towards any of my work!
