Animation has always been a huge part of my life. Only recently have I realized that it is the perfect meshing of my love for studio art and digital design.

I began working in animation in the fall of 2013. I've been working with ToonBoom's Animate Pro to import, refine and color all of our animator's hand drawn cels. I am head colorist for The Changeling Chronicles and am a background artist as well as part of the art direction team.

Changeling Chronicles is a new series developed by a team of very talented individuals who are also pioneering the animation program at Azusa Pacific University. To learn more about the project visit our facebook!

Head Colorist:  I structured all of the color palettes for the film. Above are two of the main character turnarounds (designed by Benjamin Sisson) with their final colors.

OTHER FUN THINGS

Recently, I began translating the way I read characters into illustrations. As I was rereading the magical Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling, I did a study of some of her characters. I do not own these characters, all is property of Ms Rowling herself. :) I just thought I'd post them for those HP lovers out there.

Above is my interpretation of Beatrice Prior from the divergent series, book 1 and book 3. Again, I have no claim on this character, she is property of Veronica Roth.
