I am an Illustrator and Designer located in the Chicago-land area. I have always sketched and doodled since before I can remember but eventually realized my passion to become an artist when I was twelve. From there I absorbed myself in any art classes, books, and tutorials that I could find to challenge and improve my skills. I studied Illustration and Design at Northern Illinois University. Through my studies I have found that I really enjoy creating narrative illustrations that tell a story using bold color palettes to create the mood and setting. My work is primarily created in digital media, however I experiment with different ways to incorporate traditional aspects such as watercolor, pencil, ink, and textures into my work to give it a more tangible feel. I have done work for a variety of clients with projects ranging from book illustration, logos, t-shirt design, event posters, and beverage labels.
