My goal as an illustrator is to create worlds that people want to spend time in. Worlds that seem so real and detailed that you wish you could just will yourself into the picture frame. I've been influenced by artists like Hayao Miyazaki and Trina Schart Hyman, whose art captivated me as a kid and made me want to leave my bedroom behind and travel in their magic worlds. I hope to do the same for a new generation of art-lovers!
