I’m an illustrator based out of Salt Lake City. I first started in the field as a graphic designer and art director working on big-budget projects for Hollywood studios and Fortune 500 companies. As a designer, I have been recognized by many trade organizations and have garnered numerous industry awards. After some time of doing work commissioning and collaborating alongside respected illustrators and photographers, I decided to change my career. In 1998, I placed a print ad in The Alternative Pick, a respected sourcebook, and got my first assignment the week the book came out.
My work is often described as “organic, textural, and painterly.” I have a penchant for found and discarded things, such as pages of scientific diagrams from old textbooks, and thrown-away ephemera, and would often combine them into my artwork. I have been featured in large newspaper organizations including The New York Times and The Chicago Tribune; publications including Esquire, Playboy, and Runner’s World. I contribute regularly to trade publications including Johns Hopkins University, UCLA, and Harvard Medicine. My work is also in the Permanent Collection of The Library of Congress and has been featured in various international publications.
