I've been drawing since I was a little kid sitting at the kitchen table with my grandpa. Although I've dabbled in multiple mediums, I always come back to grayscale pencil sketches. I'm most comfortable drawing horses, as I was always fascinated by them at a young age and drew them over and over, studying the contours, graceful arches, and fluid movements of the majestic animals.
A few of my pieces have been gifted or sold, but most remain with me. "Nevermore" was awarded an honorable mention in the Tri-Kappa Art Show in 2010. "The Raven" and "Dapple Gray" are both on display in downtown Michigan City, Indiana.
Maintaining creative control over my work influenced my decision to become an indie author when I published my first novel in 2018. I design my own book covers, graphics, maps, and merchandise for my award-winning Chronicles of Avilésor fantasy series. The books are an ultimate merging of passions for me, and I'm proud to say they are just as much a part of my artistic side as they are my writing side.
All the artwork and graphics you'll find here on my website are my own. Very few authors can say that! Because being an artist has become part of my personal brand, I don't outsource my work. I believe in being authentically true to myself and my talents, and that's what I'm here to share with you. This website is a personal résumé, digital gallery, and blog of my journey. Welcome to my world!
