Keeper of the Stones

An illustrated novel

I had a great time working with author, Roz Kay and her publishing company throughout 2019 on this book. I flew through the chapters and enjoyed brining the big and small moments to life in pen and ink.

This novel has been awarded a Kirkus starred review!

The black-and-white illustrations by debut artist Rothaus are skillfully shaded and composed, adding to the book’s sense of mystery. Both gripping and lyrical—a fine time-travel tale.

Let me introduce myself

I’m an artist that works primarily in ink who is deeply inspired by my surroundings. I have a love for wildlife, music and the local arts scene where I live in Washington State.

Dark, whimsical and sometimes slightly macabre themes are common in my approach but my love for exploring human emotion and the outdoors saturates my work most.
