I’m an illustrator, animator, and storyteller looking for an opportunity to share my enthusiasm and passion for art and animation with people around the world. In my practice, I take inspiration from horror, film, bugs, and nature- I've always felt most at peace when camping or hiking out in Kananaskis away from the congested city. I also get a lot of my ideas and stories when I use public transit (which I use pretty regularly). I always have my sketchbook on hand to jot down the different kinds of people, situations, and dialogue I see and hear- a lot of the life and personality of Calgary is right under our noses. Ultimately, my goal after graduating from university is to join the animation industry and share my stories and experiences through short films, and perhaps someday, feature-length animated films. All of my work (including illustration) relates to my practice in animation somehow- whether I'm designing characters, practicing painting, refining my motor skills, or writing down ideas. All of the prints I have for sale in my shop were created as studies or explorations of topics and creatures I'm curious about and want to learn more about. If you want to follow my journey and watch my work grow and develop, I encourage you to follow me on social media! Sometime soon, I will be opening a shop with even more goodies for sale.
