Illustration, Graphic Design & History – Specializing in dynamic illustrations of scenes, sites, and peoples lost to the past - until now!

I’m a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration, Art History Minor. There is a wide range of experience I bring with me – from publishing books and ebooks as a designer and illustrator, to diverse work in advertising and promotion, to layout, hand-lettering, image editing, web design, poster design, infographic design, and packaging design.

I also have a more specialized skill set as a history-themed illustrator, interpreting and recreating scenes, sites, and peoples lost to the past. This focus suits anything historically themed - from magazine articles about sites and events, to historic book covers, to reconstructions for museums and textbooks, to entertainment design.

Samples of my design work can be viewed at and my historical work at the main site, I would love to hear from you about opportunities pertaining to any and all of the skills and interests listed above!

Work Terms

I'm happy to be approached with anything, let me know what you have in mind!

With illustrations and design work I, once contracted, I usually offer three comps (rough renderings) to chose from, and allow adjustments to be requested at that stage. Once a comp is finalized it will be followed precisely in the final rendering. (Requests for dramatic changes after comp approval will require an additional fee.) After that, some clients prefer me to go straight to final, others to check in halfway from comp to final. Minor adjustments can be requested up to the end without any trouble. I will continue tweaking and refining until I have your full satisfaction!
