Illustrations and Character Art

I've always loved stories and storytelling. When I read books as a kid it felt like looking through a window into a fantastical world full of adventure that I was somehow a part of. Figuring out that I could create worlds of my own just using a pen was a revelation that became the driving force behind my illustration. From concept art to pattern work my goal is always to think, what kind of story is this art telling? 

I'm inspired by anything fantasy; magic and non-human characters show up in my work often. But while I love grand tales of adventure my art leans more towards the magic of everyday moments, the quiet space between battles, the sense of wonder in small details. I'm also queer and non-binary and in my work strive to portray a diverse range of characters and human expression in the fantasy I saw as a space to escape the restrictions of our world.

This page is meant as an overview of the work I've done this year. Be sure to click on my portfolio link above to see higher resolution images, more in-depth descriptions, and process work for each project.
