I am a freelance illustrator, born and raised in the eclectic city of San Francisco. After attending the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, I realized that my true calling lies in illustration itself. I think what sets me apart is my ability to render realistically by hand- I love being able to organically translate my thoughts and feelings into drawings. I specialize in realistic human portraiture, and love drawing beautiful girls with whimsical details. I am inspired by the flora and fauna of the natural world and the characteristics it shares with the human spirit. I have done illustration for product development, movie storyboards, company logos, and personal portrait commissions.
