I am a horror/science-fiction writer as well as an illustrator.

My web site features my virtual art gallery and is a collection of my mixed media drawings. At this stage of my art career, I work primarily with pen & ink and Photoshop, although many of my older works were done in color pencil and acrylic. I may return to the latter media at some point, but for now I am enjoying the greater flexibility pen & ink and Photoshop have allowed me in my work.

I am a big fan of the German artist, Albrecht Dürer, and although I am by no means a “master” such as he was, I enjoy the challenge of trying to emulate his engraving techniques via pen & ink.

As an artist, I define myself as someone who is mostly self-taught. I studied art briefly at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC, and took a few courses, here and there while in college. But, due to my other interest, writing, I decided to pursue a degree in journalism and the media arts.

I am active with several horror conventions in the US, and will be participating in the Horrorfind.com 2004 Convention in Hunt Valley, Maryland. While there, I will promote my two illustrated novels, The Maidens of Babylon and The Arachne Experiment, as well as an illustrated book of original poetry, The Eye That Is Me.
