Illustrator & Fine Artist

I'm a visual artist with a focus on drawing and illustration. Equipped with my expertise in printmaking and drawing, I'm especially passionate about creating the visual armature for authors, poets and musicians. This year alone, I have illustrated the covers for five books, created several album covers for local musicians, and am currently entrusted with the illustration and layout of an entire literary zine. As a full-time artist, my own creative practice allows me to explore a variety of media. I vacillate between meticulous/obsessive and exploratory/playful. My favorite materials include pen and ink, water-soluble graphite, cyanotype, gouache, and mixed media. Being an artist also means I am in charge of showcasing my work online, and getting various forms of my art out in the world. I frequently create digital layouts for my website, online store, and social media platforms. I have designed stickers, postcards, prints and enamel pins for myself, and have been hired to create several logos for others. I also have three years of expertise in making greyscale portraits using water-soluble graphite to capture the essence of your beloveds. This is heart work, and I am grateful for the opportunity to have created over fifty portraits, often memorializing the subject. • I'm experienced with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign • I love collaboration, and it brings me complete joy when I connect with clients who are dialed in to what they want and at the same time trust my vision! It's true magic to align with and breathe life into what my client envisions! • My Sun, Mars and Mercury are all in Leo, so I work passionately, have a fiery drive, and will be communicative and attentive about your project from start to finish I cannot wait to envelop your ideas, writings, music, and whatever else you are passionate about with my imagination!
