Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the answers to the frequently asked questions

Q: Where did you learn to draw?

A: I've been drawing all my life, but with many breaks due to life events. I use online tutorials and resources made by great artists to learn and improve. The key was making the sacrifice to art every day.

Q: What tools, programs, or materials do you use?

A: I use a variety of mediums depending on the project. For standalone art, watercolor and pencil are my preferred traditional painting mediums. For comics (which need consistency and speed) and children's book illustrations (which pass through directors and sometimes need a lot of editing), I use Photoshop. I'm spending more and more time in digital these days! Took me years to finally do it.

Q: Can I use your art/ post it on my website/ or sell it?

A: My online art is free only if you notify and credit me as the original artist (link to my website or social media). Under no circumstances can you try to sell or profit from my artwork or use it to spread hate. Nonprofit charities and educational institutions can contact me for free use.

Q: Can I contact you to do free artwork?

A: I don't do any artwork free of cost though I will consider a non-profit I feel particularly close or indebted to. However, please contact me about any contests, fan art festivals, conventions, challenges, monthly themes, or other such fun things.

Q: What other kinds of art do you do?

A: Beyond commercial illustrating, I love photography, portraits, and comics. Check out my Pinterest and Instagram for day-to-day art practice.

Q: Where can I buy prints of your work?

A: You can find my prints at or contact me directly.
