Continuing Education

2015 – Present

After deciding upon illustration as a career, I have been taking numerous online classes every year to help develop my craft. I am entirely self taught, since my last art class in school was when I was in the National Art Honor Society in high school! I love to learn and am currently working on branching out into children’s illustration and including more stylization in my work.
