Thank you for visiting my blog and portfolio! I’ve been fascinated by art, especially fantasy and sci-fi themed, for as long as I can remember, and have been transfixed by the World Wide Web since it started. Growing up as the web grew has been exciting and enthralling: I remember using the Yahoo! site directory to find HTML iFrame anime fan pages and downloading midi files of theme songs. If you’re wondering, that places me at 32 years old.

Since my earliest days of surfing the web, I’ve always been drawn into reading other people’s online journals. I wanted to return the favor by sharing an art blog of my own. This is also a place for me to explore the art of words, the stories in the mind’s eye rather than on the sketchbook page.

Learning any form of art isn’t easy, and while there are a lot of videos and tutorials on the specifics of drawing technique and form, it’s harder to express the journey itself — learning to stay inspired, believe in yourself, and make art a part of your life. Even when you feel lost in the woods and alone in the night, muses are always whispering if you pause and listen. I aim to make mine smile.
