Hi, and welcome!
I paint and draw my illustrations aiming for warmth, fun, and flow—and elevating the mundane. Collaborating and making images that add content, ideas, or personality and enliven clients' messages are at the core of my work.
Themes I get enthusiastic about, among others, are the natural world, ecology, conservation, psychology, scientific discoveries, the cosmos, well-being, culture (visual arts, comedy, music, movies, books). And of course, people, our relationships, stories, and love. I mostly get commissioned to illustrate people, often representing these fields, and I'm happy about that! At the moment, I'm expanding my repertoire to other things as well.
When I'm not working, you can usually find me doing sports, reading, or learning to do impersonations with my kids. Documentaries about the universe, walking in forests with friends, and well-written sitcoms inspire me without fail.
