Hello and WELCOME!!I hope you enjoy viewing my fantasy art! I began a strong interest in fantasy interest while reading one of my favorite fantasy series, in 1999. I create art in several genres but seemed to devote more time for fantasy in the last 10 years.
I am a Northern Plains native, born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska (Go Big Red!!) attending Lincoln High School and during that time sold some of my earliest artwork there. I did attend a few showings and did have my fine art hung in a Professional Gallery.
I have resided in Southern California since 1999 and work from my home. I graduated from College at Mt. San Antonio, in Walnut, CA.with a GPA of 3.76, with a professional's certification in Art Illustration and Graphic Art.
What I do: I create illustration designs, freelance and sell my designs on products in my own Zazzle Stores! I do keep busy. I won a Fan Quality award with MediaWest*Con of which I am a member for one of my book cover designs and have had several Honorable Mentions. Also garnering a Favorite here at Elfwood. I am available for discussion and to do illustrations freelance. I also do commission art for human and animal portraits. But, because it's so difficult to commit making an art purchase, I offer a payment plan up for those who fit the necessary profile. :-) Thank you for coming!
