As an artist I seek to grow my abilities through learning from others, observing the ever-changing world around me, and working to distill ideas down to their most meaningful form. With the many forms of art being at a crucial crossroads within our culture, I hope to add a positive voice to an often underestimated, and grossly misused form of societal change.
Countless people, life experiences, environments and media have encouraged my love of drawing, writing, and creating my own toys. This passion for taking ideas, giving them life, and sending them forth into the world to be enjoyed influences much of what I do today. Having a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Technology with a Graphic Arts Minor allows me to look at the creative processes of a wide variety of artistic endeavors with a unique, technology focused perspective.
While I owe much of my artistic development to my formal education, I also have avidly sought to grow my abilities through the taking on of many personal works, volunteer design efforts through Church, and freelance projects. Some of these include the writing and illustration of children’s books, brochures, How-to booklets, flyers, board game design, logo design, posters, and commissioned artwork. If you have a project of any size you’d like to see brought to life, I’d enjoy talking and working with you!
