Summary

Welcome to my world of bots and other unique creations. When I am not in my workshop creating my next robotic sidekick, I am making work and solving creative problems.

I am a visual storyteller who goes on an adventure with every new character, and new world that comes into view. From traveling with space rangers, to collecting robots for my collection I am always on the move. Creating whimsy and fantasy for children young and old, is important to me, because I enjoy the innocence and possibilities that the imagination can bring to the world.

My work is inspired by cartoons, anime, along with Japanese and American comics with a hint of robotic elements. With great characters comes a great story. I believe in telling a story with each character I create, because I want the viewer to know that my world is their world. My art thrives with vibrant colors and creative energy that contains quirky elements, in order to give the audience a cheerful and safe environment.

The work I am presenting shows that I am experimenting with various materials: watercolors, digital imagery, and pen and ink to name a few. Because, there is more than one way to create an image and there is more than one way to solve a problem.
