My Bio
Welcome to my page!

I’m an illustrator in his twenties who was born and raised in the Ottawa/Gatineau area of Canada. After receiving a BSc in Environment and working in a small office for a couple years, I decided to switch gears and devote myself to what has always been my true passion: art.

I'm always excited to hear about potential work/commissions, so if that interests you, I can be reached either here on deviant, or through the email address found on my website.

Also, I have a facebook page that could really use some more love. In all seriousness, that's the place to be for my latest sketches, thoughts, and work-in-progress pieces.

Were you busy with making that Steam game (if so understandable. If you have another excuse, still understandable).

I have been busy with studying for the university. I am going to (or have decided) to get an art degree after this. I am sort of going down your path, but this time, I want a degree in both science and art, lol!

Also, I am still sad over the US election results, ahhaha. ONE DAY, YOU MIGHT SEE ME IN CANADA INDEED.
