I am an artist and illustrator working with traditional mediums to create a variety of illustrative outcomes, such as visual narratives, cards and gifting, and home decor. I aspire to create visual pieces that mostly construe reality with fantasy, in a traditional light while up-keeping a modern aesthetic. My main inspirations come from sources related to children's literature and the natural world, creating an exciting contrast that has the ability to communicate important, yet fun and nostalgic messages to the viewer.
Pencil-work is my go-to medium, as I love the softness and fluidity they provide. I also find they are more intimate and pragmatic, yet they are vulnerable, so that every mark left is raw and genuine. I have always had an admiration for detail and creating realistic representations of the subject at hand. I hope to use my illustrations to help my audience resonate with nostalgic images from their childhood, recreated with a more mature, fresh palette.
