Tattooing for four years and expertly balancing painting for gallery shows and freelance illustration jobs, there’s no artistic challenge I don’t enjoy getting my hands on.
In my younger days, I chose to leave the comfort of hermitage to attend Savannah College of Art and Design, where I graduated with an Undergraduate Award and a BFA in Illustration. After living in Georgia for three years, I moved back home to Boise, Idaho to pursue a career in the illustrative arts. My illustrative clients have included the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, Deep Magazine, the Downtown Boise Association and more, alongside local galleries, mixed-use spaces, newsweeklies, and smatterings of album covers and shirt designs.
It wasn’t long into my freelance illustration career I was persuaded to try my hand as a “tattoo artist” and haven’t looked back. A drawer since birth, painter by trade, I now work in a variety of media of anything from oil paint, to skin and ink. My current work masquerades as inviting and soft – oftentimes melancholic, pop surrealistic images rife with subtext and layered with playful undertones of symbolism and I enjoy tattooing in most styles.
