I'm a fantasy/comic artist/illustrator currently working freelance out of central New York state. When I'm not drawing, I tend to watch a lot of sci-fi/fantasy-related shows and movies, listen to folk music, and read lots of comics, among other geeky things.

Artist Statement time

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 22, 2015, 7:02 AM
So I hadn't updated my artist's statement in a good long while, to the point that I'm not even sure if I ever shared it on here. But with renewed purpose and faith, here it is.

Artist’s Statement

Through my work I want to explore and express Love and connectedness, how True self-love is important and how, through Spirit, we are all a part of each other and the world around us.

I will use art, image and story to show the truths of our own world, as best I understand them, through Fantasy, Faerie and Fairy Tale.

I will explore themes of identity, self importance vs. the greater good, body image and beauty, and letting go of the negativity that holds us all back.

I hope that through the lens of the Faerie realm, my experiences with it, I can offer hope to any others who are struggling – using my art and the stories that come through me as a valued tool for that purpose.
