Biography

    Daydreaming is my favorite pastime. I like to chase wild through the fields of half-remembered dreams after a herd of untended ideas. And drawing and writing are my way of grabbing those fantasies by the tail and wrestling their squirming forms into something recognizable. Art for me has always been about telling stories, and I can't put pen to paper without hearing those stories gallop through my brain like proud, psychedelic crayfish.

    Above all, drawing, painting, creating in general makes me happy. Whether it's for me or for someone else, I love to pull new things from the ether.
