A freelance artist living and working in Michigan. My blog @ inkpaperstring.com follows everything I'm doing in my studio, updated twice weekly.
I specialize in doodling, drawing, illustration, painting.
Practicing incorporating old scanned line art and digital painting!

Mockup for a personal project close to my heart - tarot cards.
Graphite drawing in a Moleskine notebook - illustration for Grimm's fairy tale. I'm posting both the raw graphite version and the one I painted in Photoshop b/c I never know which I end up liking better!

Mixed media drawing. The sky can spread oppressively across a flat landscape like the meadows of the midwestern United States. In this drawing I wanted to evoke that sense as a backdrop for a trio of Weirds, soothsayers of folklore.
WIP in the sketchbook. Colored pencil, feeling like Springtime
Mixed media (pretty much every type of pen/marker I have is in these somewhere). Recovering from surgery last month, slowly learning to sit upright again, thinking about flowers. :)
Watercolor practice inspired by a Jan Mankes painting and recent weather.
