I'm a freelance illustrator and a Kendall College of Art and Design graduate currently living in Michigan. My work ranges from rendered paintings in watercolor, to still-lifes in pastel, to film storyboards, to more comic-style illustrations in digital or traditional colors. Needless to say, my work is diverse. My intention for use of this blog is to display my artwork in a professional manner and to bring in commission-based business. Essentially, this is my online portfolio. Many illustrators are using blogs these days, and needing a presence for myself, this will hopefully work for me as well. So I encourage you to watch regularly for postings of artwork and perhaps be compelled to call on my services for a commission. Keep in mind that I work in a variety of mediums and subjects, so do not hesitate to ask for something that you might not see here. Just contact me at, my work e-mail and my Paypal account.

Read my illustration commissions post as a starting point to get an idea of the potential price range.

Christmas play sets

Here I am standing by the backdrop painting, hung behind the choir seats.

Each year my hometown church of Perry Baptist traditionally puts on two Christmas play programs: one with children, the other with adults. This year I was asked to assist with set designs for the children's play "Miracle on Main Street" by painting a backdrop, requesting that it be a town square with a visible church. Rarely do I work large scale like this, so even after spending nearly two weeks working on it, it only managed to be mostly complete before the deadline came. Had I a better notion of how much work would go into such an endeavor, I would have started earlier. As they say, hindsight is 20/20. Still, the painting was satisfactory for the play and afterward I put on the finishing touches, as it may have a use in future Christmas plays.
