My Story

I am an illustrator based in southern Maine, and like most artists, started creating art at an early age. There was always this joy of putting pencil to paper that I just could not shake. Ask anybody from my childhood, and they'll tell you that I was the kid sitting off by himself with a sketchbook and pencil in hand.

Fast forward a few years and I received a Bachelors from the Maine College of Art in 2008 with a focus in, surprise, illustration.

Primarily, I work with comics, caricatures, tattoo and logo design, portraits, comics, coloring/activity books. Chances are though, if there is an art project out there, any art project,  I'm willing to tackle it.

I like to work with a variety of media, but I do tend to gravitate towards pen and ink, marker, and more recently digital coloring.

I have worked freelance over the years, successfully self published a small handful of comic and coloring books, and continue to make art daily. 

When I am not hunched over the drawing table in my basement studio, I love spending time with my family and watching them grow. They themselves are becoming quite the little artists, and if I'm lucky, sometimes they will create with me.
