Artist Statement:

Illustration fascinates me because it encourages research, brainstorming, and the occasional elbow grease to render a diamond out of silly putty. At its best, Illustration is truthful visual communication between viewers of all ages.I am the quiet observer who hits you with a slap of humor and sincerity. I draw with a paintbrush, ink, and anything that will produce color. Let's just say, I don’t discriminate between the art, hardware, and office supply stores. I am motivated by experience, and look at everything wondering how it could influence an illustration. In a world full of instant gratification, I just want people who see my artwork to slow down for just a second and hopefully smile.
