"I have found a desire within myself that no experience in this world can satisfy; the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."  ~  C.S. Lewis

The Artist

A bit about me, and how I became an artist.
I have been fascinated with the world of fantasy since I was little, when my parents began reading me books like Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz. From then on my imagination was incurably overactive.  At an early age I began attempting to bring all the characters and stories in my head to life on paper.

I took a few art classes in high school and college, but was never really able to focus my skill or artistic vision.  My son was born in 2001, and I would often take the time during his naps to work on my art.  It's a bit tricky to have art supplies around a toddler, so once I discovered digital painting it felt like the perfect fit for me.  Working digitally also gave me the freedom to do a lot of experimentation, and I began to develop my own voice and artistic identity.  I started selling prints and licensing with companies who make t-shirts, cards, figurines, and other fun stuff featuring my artwork that are sold around the world.

My inspiration.
I strive to breathe life and character into the unseen world of imagination, to share the magic with everyone so that they can also view and enjoy these fantastic enchanting worlds and characters that I envision. Our world can be sad, or hard to bear at times...  I hope that my artwork can be an escape, and bring some joy and magic back into this world.  If my art can make just one person smile, and be happy for a day, I feel that I have succeeded.

 

I am so thankful to everyone who has supported me and my art over the years.  I would not be able to do what I do without all of your support ♡
