Play time is essential for growth so I schedule time regularly to “play” at my drafting table. Practice drawings and personal work inspired by my family and friends are often my focus during these play periods. And, many time, happy accidents or breakthroughs with new media are the result. These breakthroughs then make their way into my future projects.

You can see examples of my personal work below:
