Illustrator by night.

I have always been compelled by the concept of storytelling, and from a very young age my passive mind flourished in the confines of intangible worlds. To this day, it is the utmost goal of my personal illustrative work to bring these distant lands, characters, and their respective narratives to life.

My work explores themes of tragedy and gothic melodrama, with an aesthetic appeal that is highly influenced by dreamy, fairy-tale like atmospheres juxtaposed against grotesque or visceral imagery.
