How did you learn to do _____? Care to share a technique for _____?

I’ve started doing videos that document some of my illustrative process so check those out here.

I’ve been creating art and crafts my whole life. I’m a self taught artist through and through. If I want to learn how to do/make/assemble something, I learn using the books and the internet (yay Google!) and a lot of trial and error. I’ve been working on a degree in Illustration for a few years and have had some additional training through those college courses as well. I use many different techniques for all of my work including sculpting, illustrating, paper crafting, collage, needle felting, sewing (both by hand and by machine), soldering electrical components, large scale woodworking, and mold making and casting, the list goes on. I’ll always try to point you in the direction of helpful resources and cite any sources I use and some of my WIP’s might be helpful. I’m happy to answer questions about items I’ve created so drop me a line!

Where can I buy your artwork?
