I am mostly self taught and am comfortable with using pencil and other materials such as markers, India ink, and paint (acrylic). I also draw digitally using a Wacom Pro Tablet and know Manga Studio 5, Corel, Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash.
I have been writing fiction since I was little and usually work on chapter stories as well as short stories. My main genres are fantasy, horror, psychological and tragedy.
I have owned and rescued animals all my life. I currently own two cats and had just adopted out a mother cat and her three kittens that we had taken in as strays. I have also owned small animals such as hamsters and frogs.

Using a Wacom Pro Tablet with Corel Painter X3
Latest piece done on the Corel Painter 12--last done with a mouse. Goes to my story, "Fleeing into Exodus."
Lucy and Her 3 Kittens
For a few months, I fostered a stray cat who had come to my house. Before the snow storm in October (2011), we took her in and called her Lucy. We soon realized she was pregnant and in December, she had her three kittens. Everyone was eventually adopted out.
"Fleeing into Exodus" Excerpt
"Fleeing into Exodus" tells the story of a girl who believes the world outside her room no longer exists. Instead, she stays in her room and runs to the worlds in her dreams.
This excerpt is taken from one of the chapters.
[Scene Background]: The main character, Sibley, enters one of her dream realms; a metal world filled with clocks and gears. She asks one of the residents of the dream world to help assist her in her search for an object which could be hidden somewhere nearby.
A Knot in the Chain
Here is a special short story entitled “A Knot in the Chain.” It is currently unfinished.
[Some background]: It was originally a short story that was to act as a preview for one of my stories that I have planned out. This short preview gives the reader a small taste of the story’s atmosphere. The actual story is a horror story (psychological).
Here are a few of my most liked pieces. They were all hand drawn; some were done using a mouse while more recent ones were drawn using a tablet. Only one was done completely with real materials such a charcoal.
