I'm an artist/illustrator/writer living in Urbana, IL. I graduated in Fine and Applied Arts/Painting from the U of I.
I'm currently involved in writing and illustrating a children's book but, as mentioned, am involved in a variety of artistic endeavors. You may refer to my painting website (listed below) if you're interested in purchasing original art, or contact me through the 40North website for illustration projects, art lessons, and writing-related services.
As mentioned, I am able to assist you with children's book illustration services or help in an advisory capacity for writing - everything from kids' material through adult fiction. In addition to ghostwriting, my strengths are helping to develop storylines, characters, and dialogue to help advance your project.
I'm able to create/assist with song lyrics as well, having played in a band for several years.
Finally, if you're interested in art lessons, I offer drawing and painting lessons for beginners through advanced.
