Hello!  I am a Michigan based fantasy artist and illustrator.
My style is heavily influenced by illustrators from the Golden Age of Illustration.
I love fairy tales, folk tales, nature, and anything dark and weird.  My ultimate goal is to create art that is immersive and fantastic.When not working on my art, I love to travel, garden, read, and spend time with my family.
