I am a young illustrator with a strong passion for drawing and illustrating animals. I work best in mediums such as acrylic, watercolor and colored pencil, but have worked with oil paints and digital as well. I graduated in 2017 from Western Connecticut State University with a Bachelor’s in Illustration. Much of my inspiration is drawn from popular companies like Disney, DreamWorks and Pixar. I grew up watching movies developed by these companies and they are a huge part of why I pursued a career in art. I was drawn to movies like The Lion King and The Aristocats because along with my passion for art, I have one for animals too! My love for animals has been with me since the beginning so I decided to combine my two biggest passions. Drawing and illustrating animals is when I am happiest and always look forward to my next commission.
