Drawing is intuitive  to me, and therefore difficult when I try to separate the craft from the creative impetus. But through writing, I’ve found that I can now step back and analyze my artwork, which gives me opportunities for improving my skills.

Some of my work are based on the stories I write. Some are done on canvas. Some are done in photoshop or illustrator. And I’ll even be sharing work I’ve done on furniture. Please visit often.


~DONOR (Shreya’s Chronicles Book 1)~

DonorBook1perfectworld8o5x505Shreya’s Chronicles is set in a SolarPunk world where the walls between dimensions separates the world of the Djinn and the Others from the Human world. Some of the fantastical creatures that live in this world are Humankind made, such as Cyborgs and Leechers…with a little help from the DJinn. Others come from over there. And some of them come from what happens to those who come over to the Human world from over there and don’t quite make it…

DONOR all four books

Donor, the first book in Shreya’s Chronicles was offered as one book and as four serialized parts. The four part serial is no longer available.

~Deal with an Angel~

Background image 2Deal with an Angel was made in the style of Japanese Light Novels, which is to say it’s part graphic novel and part novella. It’s set in a SolarPunk world. Fifteen-year-old Hetta has just been made an offer by an angel, an offer she can’t resist. But things aren’t what they seem and she’s about to find out that making a deal with an angel is pretty much the same as making a deal with a devil…with one important difference. (Coming Soon.)

~ Tangling ~

first comp tangle 11061I also create artwork called tangles using the Zentangle method. For more information or for more tangles visit my Tangles page. Tangles are repetitive strokes that combine to form patters which build into artwork. It can be used as a meditative process.
