I, like most children, had a vivid imagination growing up. I was constantly drawing and creating worlds, characters, and playing make believe. I remember hearing Harold and the Purple Crayon, Where the Wild Things Are, and Dr. Seuss read to me as a child and being engrossed by the worlds the authors created.
As I became older, I read more and more, but also found myself paying attention to the visuals. I was drawn towards the graphic novels and following a vast array of illustrators online.
My main inspiration are illustrators Andy Ristaino and Lois Hannah, who have created beautiful, extensive worlds and characters. Their work showed me how illustration can make the reader feel a part of a character’s life and what it’s like to share a world with them.
To this day, whenever I read a book or view an illustrator’s work, I am fascinated by what their minds can bring to the pages. Every person has unique characters, settings, and plots to bring to life. Now, with the opportunity to display my work, I invite you to come share in mine.
