illustration of Digital painting of the astrological sign, the archer, from the western zodiac.  I depicted this sign as an otherworldly, alive, statue of sorts. Being a fire element sign, I liked the idea it embodying both the open flames of an old furnace and the mystical theme of holding the stars within its body; having his bow open a portal when drawn- showing a peek of the true celestial form. hooves, centaur, fire, stars, metallic, aged, patina, character, bow and arrow, gods, warrior

illustration of Digital painting of the astrological sign, the bull, from the western zodiac. I blended the western bull with the water buffalo to add dimension and intrigue to the horns, forming a sculptural crown form upon its head.

Profile

Humanizing the often large and complex problems we face in life has become a pillar in making progress within industry, community, and movement. The human experience behind any given situation matters now more than ever. Incorporating digital and traditional mediums, my process is about creating work that is equally captivating and emotive. My style has a painterly approach that incorporates bold colors, graphic shapes, and balances the tension between raw unfinished edges and refined detail.
