I grew up in Casper, Wyoming. As a kid I spent a lot of time in the Nicolaysen Art Museum and the Tate Geology Museum, which nurtured a lifelong passion for painting and dinosaurs. As an adult, I finally found a way to marry my two first loves into a career as a Paleo Artist. So for the first time in my life I can finally say I'm "living the dream" unironically. I'm also healing my inner child so it's a win/win.
I also work on independent graphic novel projects with my friends on the side. My main project is AngryKittenJuice ((look us up))
In my down time I enjoy playing D&D, getting wrecked at metal shows, and pretending to be a banshee in the national forests. I like collecting stickers, dead things, and stuffed animals. I'm really bad at ending bios... The end... 👽💀
Born into a military family I grew up moving from place to place. Because of this I was able to meet a lot people who each had their own stories and history; this deeply inspired me to explore more into the human psyche.
It wasn’t till much later that I branched out and studied other creatures & plant life. Most of my previous artworks feature dreamscapes in a pen and ink medium.
It wasn’t till receiving my degree in studio arts that I was challenged with working in other mediums such as acrylics, colored pencil, charcoal, clay and so on. Being a paleo artist has really given me the opportunity to continue two things that I love history & art.
Outside of DeepTime I focus more on comics, character development/design and animation.
