I am an illustrator by hand, using pencil and ink on paper as my preferred medium. I love the detail I can achieve by working in illustration. Living in Louisiana my whole life has inspired me to to create art based on my environment here in a more realistic traditional style. I also enjoy creating a more abstract, expressionistic type of drawing I call "cartoon surrealism" – which are very detailed "comic like" images. Some of these images are quite large and take over 6 months to complete.
