thanks for stopping by!

Originally from San Jose California, I started drawing as soon as I could hold a crayon. I began oil painting when I was 14 and started selling work around age 16. I've taken an art class in highschool, art appreciation, art 1A and intermediate painting in college - but otherwise I'm self taught. I think the best thing about the classes was being around like-minded people and getting to see other people's styles and sources of inspiration. I enjoy murals especially for children's rooms and faux finishing. Initially I wanted to be a children's book illustrator but now I'm interested in concept art, graphic novel illustration, comics and book covers. I made the switch to digital 3 years ago when I got illustrator and acquired graphic design gigs almost accidentally, then 2 years ago I finally bought a wacom tablet and I got corel and then photoshop. It was about time to join the crowd of digital artists - I kept seeing great digital work in the Spectrum contemporary fantasy art books - that pushed me to make the switch. Since then I've been furiously generating pieces and playing with new programs here and there. I have an interest in animation and 3d modeling but I don't want to get too far ahead of myself. Almost all of my art is representational, a lot of which is fantasy, and I have an affinity for strong female figures. I also enjoy depicting animals both real and mythical, so I guess most of my work is of living things - animals or people.
please pm me about commissions

Is there any sort of art that I am not doing that you'd like to see? (or see more of something I don't do that often)
