Hello!

Nice to meet you :)

I am an illustrator / designer currently based in Lexington, Kentucky. I have a strong interest in character design and story telling using detailed line work and pattern making. I am half Japanese and half German-American. In my artwork, I like to combine traditional mediums with the digital and tend to mix Western and Japanese cultures through compositional studies, brushwork and color.
