Biography - Artist Statement

I grew up reading books by Heinlein, Asimov, Lackey, and Tolkien. My dad works as a computer engineer and my mom as a preschool teacher. This created a strange technical, creative vortex into which I was swept away. This also created a liking of games and the stories they told. I began taking art classes in middle school. With my creative juices flowing, I continued my art career into the field of digital arts. Coming to Bowling Green State University, I soon found myself immersed and covered in projects and ideas. College also introduced me to other forms of entertainment that I hadn’t yet been subjected to. With new friends, who also have creative minds, I was able to give into my past and conjure up the stories in my mind through table top gaming. Ideas are what I pride myself on, and stories are what I love displaying in my work.
