I have always enjoyed illustrations and images related to stories because they were a huge influence in developing my imagination. As a child, I drew and painted many of these types of images, and continued to pursue art in general through high school and college. I attended Wichita State University where I earned a degree in art history, painting, and English literature.

Since then I have focused on developing illustration and story-related imagery. These types of pictures influenced me and I want to, in turn, be able to do that for others. I think the ideas of wonder and possibility are powerful ones, and my goal is to bring the viewer to a place of wonder and possibility. The stories I paint are usually my own. I don’t always aim to give a complete story in my paintings; sometimes it’s just a glimpse, just enough to get the viewer’s mind working and wondering and imagining. Enjoy.
