  • GUEST BIO

    I’m considered a fantasy and science-fiction illustrator, but I identify much more with the latter. While fantasy has set tropes, science-fiction allows for endless possibilities. That’s why I love the genre so much and believe that I add elements of sci-fi to all of my work. My favorite pieces blend the joy of music with the possibilities of a sci-fi setting. Music not only inspires me, but has been a reliable anchor and friend my entire life. At my lowest points, when I was on the verge of quitting art and giving up on myself, music is what got me through. I want to somehow convey the understanding and joy that music gives all of us visually- and I’ve found that sci-fi gives me a natural setting to do that. Exploration, the weightlessness of zero gravity, lights, technology, characters unhindered by the limits of our familiar reality; all of these things blend seamlessly with the feelings I want to express visually in my work. Ultimately, I hope others will view my work and feel the way they do when listening to music.
