This is a varied collection of illustration work that I have done over the past several years. Each sliding gallery once clicked opens into full view. Feel free to take a look around!

For this project, I selected several second hand books and decided to recreate the covers using acrylic paint. Inspired by Kenneth Patchen's painted books.

This was a collaboration project alongside glass artist Matthew Abadi and furniture designer Ryder Sherwood. I created an all encompassing space with painted panels and also designed the social and print materials. Displayed at Open Haus Market.

This was a personal project in which I used paper cutouts to create compositions. Later these photos were edited in Adobe Illustrator and the colors enhanced.

After spending a month in Buenos Aires, I decided to create an illustrated book of poems to commemorate the experience. Only 20 copies were made. All illustrations are ink drawings.

These ink drawings documented my travels in San Francisco and Portland. As a result, several pieces were commissioned for other destinations.
