ABOUT

ABOUT the Artist

I am an Illustrator, Printmaker and Tattoo Artist living in Vermont. My content often explores flora and fauna from local woodlands as well as imaginary creatures from other worlds entirely.  I use pen and ink, colored pencils, watercolor and gauche as my primary illustration tools.  As far as printmaking my experience is in intaglio etching but I intend to incorporate more letterpress, woodcut and silkscreen as I continue learn and create. 

Much of my work explores the nature and relationships of creatures both real and imagined, all rendered with the same level of fine line detail and narrative in their postures and expressions.  Studying the world around me has often showed me what kind of magical worlds exist in my own imagination. For me it is nourishing to work on both the inventive drawings as well as more literal, realistic types of illustrations.  It is a balancing act. The realistic work has an emphasis on technical detail which is a really meditative process for me. The imaginative stuff pushes me to share my emotional connection to the work.  Each practice deepens the other.  I have reverence for the world I see around me at the same time I imagine other worlds.  I am deeply grateful to share this art practice I love so dearly!

Thanks for looking.
