About me
I'm an illustrator, artist, and educator based in Utah, USA. I've been an active freelance illustrator for over 15 years working with a variety of clients, but focusing mostly on working with design studios to create assets for products, identities, and marketing campaigns. I also create work for publishing, including editorial and children's books projects. My first authored and illustrated book, "Mr. Sherman's Cloud" was released in March of 2019.

  • Mr. Sherman's Cloud
    Mr. Sherman's CloudI was thrilled to be able to author and illustrate a children's book for Page Street Publishing, titled "Mr. Sherman's Cloud." The book focuses on the idea that each of us can choose how to see our circumstances and how to respond to them. It's been great to share this book with children and introduce the idea of a positive outlook on life during a time when there's so much more worry about the future.
  • Captain Nemo

Captain Nemo is such a multi-faceted character, so using my detailed illustrative style was a perfect fit for him. It was especially exciting to be a part of such a diverse showing of so many amazing illustrators.
