I am an artist in the the Chicago area.

I love working on nitty, gritty, detailed art. My favorite things to draw are animals. Lately I've been inspired by rare and unusual animals from around the world. Did you know there are pink dolphins in the amazon river?

I create digital paintings and intricate ink illustrations.

My process starts with pencil and paper. I sketch the animal until I find a pose I like. Then I trace over the sketch with ink on tracing paper. All of the intricate ink work is done freehand from here. I like tracing paper because it is very smooth.

From sketch to completely inked, I spend anywhere from 8-15 hours per piece. Usually I'll make prints of each piece to sell but sometimes I will only sell the original.
