I am heavily influenced by old sci-fi, mystery and horror movies, monsters, UFOs, hauntings and unexplained events. I love to draw and find inspiration from the strange and unusual. I attended the School of Visual Arts and majored in Illustration in 2012.

Black and white photos have always captured me, specifically their tonal representation. I try to evoke that when creating my pictures. I live in an old cape in the woods of New England. Ideas tend to come to me late at night when everything is quiet. Something about the dark and the silence always gets my imagination going. I start sketching ideas. The planning stage never lasts long and I go right into the drawing. I tend to work small. I like the portability of it.

All pieces are pencil on paper.
