I am a story-inspired Christian artist from the Pacific Northwest, with an especial love for the fantastical, whimsical, thought-provoking and other-worldly, although I have been known to venture out from Faerie to the human side of the veil from time to time. When I'm not making art, I love reading, writing, being out in nature, and drinking rather copious quantities of tea. In 2011, I completed the four-year program at Atelier Maui, which was almost entirely based in drawing from life. Since then, I have continued to study on my own, and I am currently working as an art instructor and part time freelancer, and I am creating a fantasy story that I plan to publish as a webcomic.

I work in a number of different styles, ranging from sketching to “finished”, and from more stylized to more realistic. I can also work in both digital and traditional media.
Examples of things I will gladly draw or paint for you*:
Original characters/costume designs.
Illustrative/story-based art (your own stories, or work in the public domain).
Fantasy (elves, dwarves, fairies, warriors, creatures, and beyond).
Reality (human and animal portraits, landscapes, still life, nature).
Select types of holiday greeting card designs/announcements/invitations, etc.
Select types of faith-based art.
Do you have your own ideas but don’t seem to see them here? Let me know!
Examples of things I won’t draw or paint for you*:
Any copyrighted/trademarked/licensed material, unless you are an owner/representative/partner of said intellectual property and have the authority to legally commission work based on this content.
Anything mocking religious beliefs.
Torture or excessive/gratuitous gore (nothing past “The Lord of the Rings” level.)
Due to the wide range of possible customizations I can make in my commissions, prices are calculated on an individual project basis. Some factors that influence pricing include the art medium, image size, image complexity, and whether you wish to own the copyright to the image. Please don’t hesitate to contact me by email if you have any questions at all regarding my work or my commission process, and I will be happy to respond. If you have an idea for a piece, I can also provide you with an estimate. Requesting an estimate does NOT obligate you to commission a piece of art.
*I reserve the right to decline to do any project I do not believe will be a mutual fit for myself and the client. If you have questions, please email, and I will be happy to answer.
