CLIENT DESIGN & ILLUSTRATION
I consider myself an observer first, and artist second (if at all). I view illustration and design as a way to tell the stories that I find compelling, and I value opportunities where I can speak with folks about the things they feel passionately about. In an increasingly rapid world, I view my role as an illustrator as a way to translate your experience and expertise into an image that will stoke people's curiosity.
While my primary focus is detailed ink naturalist illustrations, I like to let the project guide the direction of the final product, and I'm comfortable working in whatever medium best serves that end. I like to tell stories - of craft, regional folk memories, and our natural surroundings - through illustration and design that reflect what you're stoked on. If you have a story you'd like to tell, I'd like to help you.
