I create illustrations that blend the worlds of comic book art and fantasy together. I enjoy creating characters and bringing them to life in paintings and illustrated stories.
I am an artist and lifelong resident of California, living in Monterey County my whole life. As a child, I learned to draw by copying comic books. That is to say, I did a lot of fanart. Later on, while on a brief stint in college, I was motivated to paint after discovering fantasy art. Because of this, my fantasy art has a touch of comic book superheroes to it. Given all of that, perhaps I should be calling this super fantasy art?
Today, I reside on the Monterey Peninsula. I pretty much draw and paint fantasy art, focusing on imaginative realism. Painting and mastering the human form is an art goal of mine. It’s probably a goal I’ll be striving toward my entire artistic career. I am also a comic book artist creating my own art and stories at www.realm-ethereal.com.
When I’m not drawing or painting, I like to dance West Coast Swing. My wife and I dance social as well as competitive West Coast Swing. We also teach monthly group dance lessons as well as teach private lessons in West Coast Swing.
