I pride myself on my varied styles and skill sets. I'm always looking to improve and diversify my craft. I believe I'm an accomplished artist with good technique and creative problem solving skills. I work well with others and like to colaberate to learn more and experiment.
I've done work commercially for companies for the last decade in many different positions and fields. I have experience doing illustration both with old school drawing materials and using digital drawing pads and programs. I have used different types of paints and painting tools to do everything from murals to large 3D sculptures in diverse styles and palettes. Everything from oil paintings to automotive. Using brushes or compressed air. I've also sculpted large and small pieces out of many materials and done simple mold making and casting. Most recently I've been sculpting with concrete for themed play grounds. Due to the nature of the materials and time constraints, it has taught me to work quickly and be innovative. I'm also familiar with IPEMA safety rules for such play equipment. I have also done fabricating and finishing work and helped with designs and concept ideas.
In my personal work I have recently begun to emerge as an artist after not making much for myself since college. I've begun to come up with a creative vision and participate in local art shows actively. In my work I like to explore the ideas of the supernatural and mythic to try to understand why humans invent monsters for themselves and how they are an expression of our primal fears. I have been doing this by making realalistic sculptures of mythic beasts and cryptids, as if they were stuffed animals in a natural history museum diorama. I use my sculpting and painting expertise with extreme detail and experiment with hair work, flocking, and natural materials. This series is an on going experiment.
Though I'm currently employed, I'm always looking for new opportunities and trying to grow my experience. I'm also open for freelance work and comissions.
