ARTIST STATEMENT

As an illustrator and designer, my goal is to tell visual stories. In my illustration work, I create monsters, characters, and comics in order to address my passion for the strange and unusual. Meanwhile, my design work forces me to ask questions about the stories I’m telling: what is apparent, what is necessary, and what needs to be explained. The resulting works I create are bold and dynamic and my hope is that they will captivate and inspire others to question what they know and share their own stories.
