Lydia dropped it off at my house, with a refund for the shipping fee. I bought the print for my wife, Kasia, and she thinks it's just great. Great quality, great service. Thanks a bunch.

Folksmith. Wait, is that a word?

My work is a representation of my thoughts on the lives of the animals, plants, and objects that surround me daily. I think about things’ feelings and assign personalities to everything from my dog to the mailbox. I draw, carve, and color my musings in a style influenced by folktales and their accompanying imagery.

While I heavily anthropomorphize the world around me, I also partly believe my stories about what my house thinks of the flies in its windows and what the flies think of the house. I strive to create empathy in my audience for these characters and hope it will have relevance in their lives, perhaps making the world around us less disposable and more alive.
