am a digital anime/chibi artist. I am a
self-taught artist, not only with my
drawing skills but with my graphics
programs as well. I mainly use Microsoft
Expression Design. I am very easy to work with and
always enjoy working with new companies
and meeting new people.
now 32-years-old (yikes!) and
currently I reside in Tennessee. Life is busy, but I am most often doing my
artwork and focusing my energy towards
my next idea. I often draw and digitally
color my work to music. I love listening
to music while drawing. Something
about music really opens my mind to more
ideas and puts me in a nice relaxed
state while I draw.
Some questions I receive regularly:
Aside from your website, can I
find you anywhere else?
definitely! Here are a couple places I

How do you get the colors on your
pieces so rich and bright?
I attribute this to doing only
digital vector work. I was never
satisfied with colors in my traditional endevours. Never could I get the colors
I really wanted and never were they
solid enough or bright or dark enough,
so when I saw digital art pieces for the
first time, I knew this is what I meant
What is vector?
Here's a definition I found online
about vector graphics: A line or
movement defined by its end points, or
by the current position and one other
Not the best description
huh? Well, how I usually explain it is
instead of with rasterized digital art
where you paint or draw with your tablet
or mouse, vector art is solid colors and
lines on a fixed point. As you draw a
vector line, where you want it to curve,
you click your mouse and it creates a
point to bend around. Vector also mainly
deals with solid colors and is not as
easy the blend as with a raster program.
So why vector?
I actually just sort of stumbled onto
a vector program one day, downloaded a
trial, and fell in love! Even though it
is more difficult to figure out while
'inking and coloring' complex
characters, it always gives me the rich
cell-shading and coloring look that I've
always wanted. I also find that, in my
opinion, my pieces come out much cleaner
and precise looking than I ever thought
What program do you use?
My program of choice is
Expression Design. I've been using it
for years now and it has not
disappointed me once. I am very much in
love with this program. :)
you take fan arts, mail, or photos?
to receive mail, art, and photos! I have
spoken with many who have been too shy
to show it to me, but please do! I
have a whole section of my site
dedicated to it so don't be shy! I
always answer my fan mail personally,
and I do not care what skill level in
drawing you are or anything like that, I
would love to see it. I often receive mail asking
for critiques of personal work and I
really think it is a very helpful
process in developing your own work.
If you would like to show me something you
