For as long as I can remember I've always loved to draw! I like expression, which is why people & animals tend to be primary subjects of my paintings. When I draw and paint, I try to concentrate on capturing the personality, gesture and imagination of a character.

I like to experiment with different media along with stylized shapes & lines. Sketching is an integral part of my work since the sketches themselves often evolve into full-fledged paintings of their own. Sketching also challenges my ability to capture the nuances of life, as well as pin down any fleeting ideas.

I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration from Utah Valley University in April of 2010.
