About

For as long as I can remember I have always had an artistic streak. I was always doodling on something, or trying to draw characters from the comic strips in the newspaper. About 13 years ago I had a renewed interest in art; I began trying my hand at oil painting. My subject matter was wildlife, and from elephants in Africa, to grizzly bears in America, I painted every animal that caught my attention. From oils I moved to acrylics and painted a series of vintage pin ups for my guitar teacher, trading paintings for guitars and accessories. Then one day I was feeling creative at work and all I had was some sharpies to use, and a new obsession was born. I shared those first drawings with some friends and was getting positive feedback, so I continued on. After getting quite a collection together many told me I should put them up for sale, and someone suggested Etsy. So, here I am. I hope you enjoy my drawings, I know I love drawing…

I hope you enjoy my drawings, I know I love drawing each of them and I’m always thinking about the next one I’d like to try. This is the first time putting my work on such a public venue and it’s all at once exciting and a bit scary! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my shop, and if you have any suggestions for a sharpie subject let me know I’m always looking for new ones!
