I love working with inks, in fact inks are one of the main reasons I became a visual storyteller. As a child I was captivated by master illustrators and visual storytellers like Hal Foster, Roy Krenkel, John Buscema, Walt Kelly, Rupert, Robinson, Pyle and of course Authur Rackham.

You might say their illos brought the stories to life and more, allowed me a safe haven in which to dream and escape the turmoil of childhood. Yes, I was one of those shy, frightened youths who's best friends were story books, the woods and my imagination.

I love to ink with all kinds of things, bamboo pens, feather quills, wooden skewers, twigs and just about any thing I'm drawn to pick up and play with. Here is where I find true peace, where the rest of the world falls away and I return to the sacredness of eternal youth unlimited and unbound.
