About

“It’s easy to make a painting look like paint, but it’s much harder to make a painting that pulls in a viewer so completely that he feels the heat of sun on his neck and the sand in his shoes.” James Gurney.

I’m a self-taught artist who is in love with fantasy illustrations and nature representations from landscapes to seascapes and sea life. My current art-related endeavors are mostly freelance jobs and commissions but I do produce my own personal artwork whenever possible, which helps me explore new possibilities outside of my comfort zone.

Tools of choice include oil colors, Acrylic, charcoal, graphite (both wood and mechanical), and Photoshop (for digital illustrations and photo editing).

Feel free to browse through my portfolio here, but if you wish to explore my day-to-day content like sketches, progress shots, creepy selfies and more you may visit my social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram.
