My Bio

I'm a self-taught artist/illustrator that works in multiple mediums including graphite and coloured pencil, acrylic and oil paints, and sometimes digital. My primary focus is the natural world, and the vast majority of my work depicts organisms, extant or extinct, although I have also been dabbling in landscape pieces recently.


I have a BA in Ancient and Medieval History with a minor in Latin and later received my MSc in Systematics and Evolution, during which I surveyed Cretaceous fossil birds of Alberta, Canada. I am currently a PhD candidate working on the genus Prognathodon, a robustly-built and often large-bodied group of mosasaurs. I'm currently in the fortunate position to have access to modern and fossil specimens that serve as informative references in my artwork, particularly fossil reconstructions.


I will be working on a new official website in the future, and hopefully taking commissions as I near the end of my program!

Hello everyone! Just wanted to ensure that I am still in existence, but life is busier now that it has ever been before. I'm working on several pieces at the moment, so those will be up eventually. I'm also conducting summer research on erosion of basalt cliffs in the Hawaiian Islands, and I have to move to a new city by fall because I'm starting my MSc. So. Yeah. I wish I had more time to draw, but that's life! :) Thank you everyone who has followed and commented in my absence; I wish I could be more active for your sakes. But, I'm alive and kicking and I will start posting again eventually. Cheers, everyone! :D

Do you offer point commissions? 
Congratulations on your artwork in the finally published Funston & Currie paper on the new Horseshoe Canyon caenagnathid. Looking awesome!
Thanks! News spreads quick, and it hasn't even been released to the media yet...!!
Heh. I like your art a lot, and was delighted to see it featured at the end of the paper ("wait, that must have been by -").
any trilobites you would like to suggest for my new project?
