Things in the Woods... Things Under the Bed...

I just want to do good work.

I am a freelance illustrator based in Austin, Texas who works primarily in ink and watercolor and specializes in storybook, folklore and monster imagery. I received a BFA in studio art from Southwest Texas State University in 1996, where my focus was on figure drawing, however the majority of my training in illustration came from networking/studying the work and books of other illustrators. During high school and college I worked as a metalsmith at McCoy Jewelcraft, where I also gained experience vending and working at arts and crafts shows. I began showing my illustration work regularly in 2012 with the Austin Craft Riot's Summer Show, and have continued to expand my audience ever since to include The Blue Genie Art Bazaar, consignments with Atown and The Burlap Bag and many other shows in and around Austin. I am the creator of the Tarot of the Dead, a Spanish/English tarot deck inspired by the Mexican Dia de los Muertos holiday. My images have also been featured in Ryan Durney's Birds of Lore, volumes 1 and 2, Clifford Pickover's Dreaming the Future, and in Stuart Kaplan's Encyclopedia of Tarot. In 2014 I completed a children’s book, The Magician’s Cat which I added to my fair line. I am currently working on completing the paintings for, The Stolen Child Tarot, an art deck inspired by the Yeats poem.
