About + Contact


Greetings! I’m an illustrator and tattoo artist living in Portland, Oregon. I attended the Pacific Northwest College of Art, where I received a BFA in Illustration.

I’ve worked in the fields of freelance illustration and indie video game art. I have also spent a number of years studying digital painting and visual development, with an emphasis in character, prop, and environment design - having been lucky enough to be taught by a number of industry professionals formerly from Disney, Nickelodeon, Reel FX, LAIKA and more.

I am visually inspired by graphic novels, contemporary and mid-century illustration, woodcuts, and geeky sci-fi pop culture. I have a strong passion for drawing and design, and enjoy working on blackwork illustrative tattoos focused on bold linework, patterning, and dotwork.
