A rustic, old cabin sits in a clearing at the end of a dirt pathway in the woods. A light shines from the attic window, hinting at the inhabitants within while a light fog drifts across the grass. The dark, shadowed foreground gives way to a bright, snowy slope covered in pine trees. This scene could be described as either peaceful or chilling and was created for the cover art of the book "In the Shadow of Porter's Hollow," to invoke a sense of awe and mystery.

I have always been inspired by fantastic and imaginative stories with dark themes. In addition to my love of fantasy, I grew up with a close relationship to (and love for) animals. These ideas and inspirations naturally made their way into my own work while I progressed as an artist.
My work would be best described as imaginative realism or dark fantasy art and has been compared to other traditional illustrative artists such as Frank Frazetta or Jeff Jones. I frequently include animals, death, skeletons, crows and other dark subject matter in my artwork.
As an artist, I try to breathe life into each piece by incorporating both subtle and bold movements. My hope is that the observer not only views the artwork, but also imagines the rushing wind, senses the cold, or hears the sound of wings thrashing in the sky. I aim for each and every piece to be a complete visual experience.
