Artist / Personal Statement
I'm a freelance children's, interactive, and editorial illustrator based in Los Angeles, California. My work tends towards richly-detailed digital paintings that live somewhere between animation and photorealism. I enjoy creating characters that come from around our world, and that inhabit worlds of imagination.
I'm at home with conceptual thinking and communication, and I love to transform complex ideas into clear and appealing images. My extensive background in design and animation also helps me to see the big picture when illustrating for a variety of projects.
Born into a multiracial family, I tend to gravitate towards diverse and multicultural characters in my illustration. I try to bring a global perspective to my work, and love to tell the stories of those who may be less visible in our world.
