About

 

A view of my workspace.

A view of a painting in progress.

I’m a painter, graphic designer, and illustrator working out of Fairbanks, Alaska. My work is primarily about color and energy and usually depicts animals in an anthropomorphic light combined with iterative marks meant to suggest the natural world. I’m always interested in trying new media, learning new processes, and collaborating with other artists. Some of my accomplishments are listed below.
