My Bio

I'm a self-taught artist semi-available for fine-art commissions and illustration work. Watercolor, soft pastels, oil pastels, charcoal, oil paint, acrylics, egg tempera, ink, graphite, and digital work are all fun and I generally pick whichever medium best suits the subject.

My work has appeared on the cover of Star Line magazine, in official lore for the MassiveCraft gaming community, and my custom Painter brushes were featured by Imagine FX. My illustrations may currently be found on nationally distributed product packaging for the General Pencil Company.

In addition to visual art, I enjoy fiction writing, photography, old cameras, cycling, and tea. I live in Connecticut with my wife, an amazing artist, and our heterochromic dog.

For frequent updates and time-lapse videos be sure to join me on TikTok, Sktchy, or Instagram. I'm leversandpulleys there as well.

Thank you! Glad you like it. I recall being a bit nervous about drawing hair, but now it's my favorite part.
