I've been drawing since I was little. It is something that comes
naturally to me. Many of my family members are artistic, including
my mom and younger sister and many of my relatives. I remember writing
and illustrating my own stories when I was six, and I have simply continued

There are many artists that I admire and have influenced me, such as
H.J. Ford who illustrated Andrew Lang's Fairy Books, J.W. Waterhouse and
other pre-Raphelites, and art nouveau artists like Alphonse Mucha.
I have also drawn upon Disney's animated features (Fantasia is my favorite),
Elfquest, anime, animated features like Batman: The Animated Series, and
numerous comic books. While I don't seek to copy a particular style,
I try to absorb different aspects to enhance my personal style. Currently,
my favorite artist has got to be Michael

character or a character in a story. I'm doing my best to work on
the weak spots in my work, such as drawing males and backgrounds and working
