    Inquisitive creativity.

    United States - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 12

    An art major with a deep interest in science and a talent for writing, I work closely with my clients to ensure the work delivered is top quality. I can work in a variety of styles depending on what's needed, and my goal is something original and eye-catching that will stand out from the crowd. Of note is my specialty in all things dinosaurs-- they have been a lifelong passion of mine, and I am current on all related science. But they are hardly all I can do; I love designing unique creatures and characters for the fantasy, horror, and sci-fi genres that don't look like what's been done before. I am always working to expand my portfolio; check back often to see what's new!
