Anchored in Reality, on the Cusp of Dreams

Art has been the vehicle for constant adventure throughout my career. Whether illustrating or creating studio works of Imaginative Realism, giving transformative attention to everyday objects, or marveling at what I see outdoors, my goal is to elevate my subject with honed craft, and when possible to create something that transcends the source. Whether it's commonplace or surreal, when I can make a viewer's face light up with astonishment or wonder, I've succeeded.

I work with commercial clients, self and small publishers in my illustration. If you'd like to commission me, drop me an email!
