... is a freelance illustrator currently based in Vicenza, Italy.

I started out my career in graphic design, providing resources for companies such as HBO, Mattel, Electronic Arts, and more.

As an illustrator, I've been awarded an Excellence award for "Can't Reach My Soul" and will be featured in the book EXPOSÉ 12. I was also featured in the book Creative Minds, awarded an Editor's Choice Award on CG Society for "Some Clouds Have Wings" and a Daily Deviation Award on deviantArt for "Holy Diver" and "A Soldier's Heart," had my concept art featured as a promotional image by Evolution Vault, and produced artwork for several book covers. In 2016, I won first place (and third place and honorable mention!) in the Army MWR's Arts and Crafts contest in the category of Digital Art.

I've worked as a concept artist, on book cover design, and numerous personal commissions, and am available for RPG artwork, painting book covers, concept art, and other professional commissions.

We really love the cover. You have brought our girls, and the mood of the realm, to life perfectly.
