A little about the artist.


I am a California native who absolutely loves my work, but aside from clicking away at the computer, I like to be moving. The water, the mountains, lake or beach, I'm in. A lifelong athlete and coach, this past year while sheltering I've been tasked with instructing my son in swimming and soccer. For solo time, running is my solace and a chance to think or listen to music. I also collect original production animation cels, mostly from anime and particularly from

Dragon Ball Z. If anyone is bored enough and would like to see the collection, I'm more than happy pull out the portfolio!
