As a child, I was enchanted by the words of Bradbury and King, cheered for characters like Atreyu and Ripley and often escaped to the far off worlds of Harryhausen and Henson.

With pencil in hand, I found myself walking alongside these wonderful creators and their creations.  Discovering a passion to explore stories that were rooted in a universe both dark and fantastic.

For over 20 years I have been fortunate enough to build a life and career around what I absolutely love.  Using digital painting techniques to create dark dreamlike images, I continuously work to provide a unique voice that evokes both the supernatural and surreal.
