Telling Stories with Art
Since 2013, I've been making custom illustrations for clients. I love the career of expressing information with art, and it's very fulfilling to work with people of all walks of life who need art coupled with their product. However, I wanted the freedom to create my own work and be able to put my own ideas out for people to buy.
One of the best parts of being an artist is getting to tap into emotion and expressing that with colors, composition, and content. If you're approached by a business for illustrations, you have to tell a story and help their customers see their vision. It's a challenge as every client is different, and there's never a dull moment (except maybe waiting for emails) in my job. One of the best things of doing it for myself is I get to really explore different worlds and put them on paper.
Currently, I live in Northern Michigan on the shores of West Grand Traverse Bay. It's a small house nestled in trees, and I've had to fight some flying squirrels and ants for it, but it's my home. My desk looks out over the water, and I spend some part of every day creating something. In the future, I will be moving to Dublin, Ireland to be with my fiancé.
