Illustration is a way to make an idea visible, a visual narrative.
With illustration, and imaginative art specifically, I get to ask the question,“What if?” After that it’s a matter of combining play and work. Each seed of an idea offers so many possibilities, and the final illustration is just one version. At some point I have to stop asking, “What if?” and choose what narrative I want to show. I want to show you the possibilities, the colors, the light of the world around us because that’s what I pull from to make my pictures. I want to delight you with color and whimsy, move you with drama of action and light, or simply make you smile.
