Ink and feathers: Creating art since 1993
I am an artist who has lived most of my life on the family farm in Carnation, WA. Having grown up in the misty, moss covered forest of the dark highlands, nature has deeply shaped what I create as an artist.
But I didn't always see myself as an artist. It wasn't until I went to college that I realized how much I enjoyed creating stories and characters and, of course, drawing!
I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil. It was the one thing that I was reliably good at, but it wasn't until I was 9 that the path of an artist became the obvious (to everyone else!) carrier path for me.
The Prince of Kydar graphic novel (princeofkydar.com) popped out of thin air in a recurring dream during a rough period in my life when I was 9 years old. I have severe dyslexia. Reading, writing, math: all those important basic subjects are a struggle for me. And when this dream happened, I was going through the worst of it. Reading didn't "click" for me until 5th grade, a few years later. This dream spirited me away into a world full of magic and mystery that helped me find my voice as an artist and a person. The characters were so vivid and the story so incredible, I wanted to share my experience with other people. But at the time, I could barely write. So! I drew it! And 13 years later, in college, I self published the first chapter.
Sharing the magic of art has become my passion. And through The Magpie, I will share my knowledge and passion with everyone who walks through my door.
I am a writer, photographer, graphic novelist, character designer, and traditional artist.
I graduated Cornish College of the Arts (2015) with a degree in Visual Communications with a strong emphasis in Motion Design.
