The first time I personally submitted my inking portfolio to the big 2 at a convention was a complete waste of time as I later found out from my colourist and friend who attended the panel on building a portfolio at the same con. For reasons I forget I wasn’t at that panel but the feedback from my friend was invaluable and set me on the path of inking others and not just my own stuff.

I have been drawing since I was a small child. I am fascinated with color.

I work with Photoshop, Paintshop, Manga Studio, and the Intuos tablet.

I am also familiar with watercolor, acrylic, oil, pencils, pastels, markers, and charcoal.

My background also is in storyboard design, portraiture, character design, magazine publication and multimedia advertisement.

******I would like to make a note that the website located below is of art that I made from 1990-2004. It is not a current reflection of my art, but a record of where I've been.
