Being an artist has been always something I wanted to do since I was a child. Even early on I would amass a quantity of work on my own time trying to learn art on my own. My first art classes was in high school where I decided that I would really try to persue art as a career. I continued on this path through college, majoring in fine arts. Rather belatedly I realized I preferred doing things in digital media, though I have no regrets about my traditional training. Currently I'm trying to improve on my own in hopes to do what I love as a living.

This is my portfolio site! This is intended for a more professional and concise site than previous attempts. Some of my other art (ie. fanart, sketches, less polished pieces, old art) can be seen on my DeviantArt and Tumblr sites. You can find more sites where I am at over at my links page.

Site information

This is version 2.0 light and clean of the site! After a year with my first layout, I've decided to go a for a (hopefully) simplier and cleaner look with lower loading times.
