Artist Statement
My most recent focus in illustration is editorial work. As a recent graduate, I hope to bring my perception of the world to the table through watercolor, pen and ink, and digital media. Offering viewers a chance to delve into a make ­believe world and bond with every element of my illustrations is what I strive to deliver. Even if only for a brief second, that moment in time can be something wonderful if the viewer is open to it.

Every piece I create stems from an ongoing love for narrative and the creation of character, pulling inspiration from the possibilities of everyday life. This kind of day­-to-day depiction, and using the world as a source of inspiration is perpetual. I think my work has the ability to appeal to a broad range of viewers, and in today’s fast-­paced society I hope to provide a moment in time in which the viewers can introduce themselves to an imaginative world and reap joy and laughter through wit and humor.

Biography
Born and raised in Manchester, New Hampshire, I developed a lust for art at a young age. It wasn’t until my last year in high school that lust turned into a passion, and what will soon be the beginning of my career. I’m a relaxed, easygoing person who enjoys making humor an important part of every day, as well as including it in my work. Beyond that, I love animals, music, traveling, nature, and food! I’m always welcome to new experiences and try to make the best of whatever situation I find myself in, decent or not.
