I find inspiration in so many places. I have always loved the work of Mary Blair. Her work has influenced me my whole life. I love the environments she creates.

I strive to have narrative told thorough pictures and sound. Words can be helpful, but creativity I want the images to stand on their own. This is always a challenge, especially in different mediums. Because I love animation, I find myself increasingly using the pen tool Adobe programs to draw in vectors and get refinement I need. Ideally, I want to have more painterly subjects but animating them can be difficult. In my latest project I’m creating everything in Illustrator and bringing that into Flash to animate the parts.
Here is my character, Clara and a tree I created.
