Louisville, KY, United States


I love to draw faces more than anything, whether realistic, stylized, or caricatured. I also have a deep love for surrealism and for fantastical landscapes. Much of my subject matter comes from the history of cinema.

Skills and Techniques

I am proficient with colored pencil, pen and ink, and graphite and can typically finish a portrait in two days. Oil paintings understandably take longer, but typically no longer than a week. I have created my portraits mostly in pencil or pen, and my landscapes in paint.
