I'm really excited to be here on DA! It's great to have an opportunity to show the kind of work that I love to paint! I have had a long interest in the fantasy Genre and in particular in paintings of women and I am at a point in my career where I can pursue it! I have spent many years as a book illustrator and portrait artist and am eager to unleash all that pent up creativity that I've had to hold back! Thanks so much for the positive welcome I've received in my very first week here! I deeply appreciate it!
