I studied illustration at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL. While I was a student, I visited Japan for the first time and immediately fell in love with Japanese culture and art (particularly the woodblock prints of the Edo period). I moved to Japan in 2007.
I've always been a huge folklore and ghost story nerd, which is how I learned about yokai. I started translating yokai stories and painting yokai illustrations on my blog in 2009. That project eventually evolved...
