What can I say? I’m a local Cincinnati artist who loves my hometown, bourbon, hot dogs and cats. I have 2 studio assistants, pictured above. Some hard at work, some hardly working.
I’ve recently made the leap of faith to a full-time fine artist and freelancer. I graduated in 2005 with a degree in Graphic design and after 10 years of working in the field, it was time to take the next step.
I work primarily in watercolors, ink and graphite. I’m also known for my portrait work and quirky bourbon paintings. I find inspiration just about anywhere, but mainly my city of Cincinnati is all the inspiration I need.
I have a strong interest in greeting cards, portrait work, loose watercolors and editorial illustrations. I love taking on new projects – so let’s chat about it!
