Hello, I’m Cody! I’m an artist with a passion for creating. I like to think of myself as a creative adventurer.
I specialize in creating illustrations for products that have a sophisticated, whimsy style that tends to lean towards kids and the young at heart. I also love to create mixed media three-dimensional sculptural wall art for exhibition. The fantastical is a particular theme I like to play around with in the art I create. I like to work with all types of media but my favorite are colored pencil, charcoal, pen and ink and acrylic paint. It’s always a bonus for me to find ways to incorporate found objects into my work such as feathers, pressed flowers, rocks or interesting items I come across.
I started my career in the publishing industry primarily designing for magazines in the consumer home and lifestyle markets. After my stint in publication, I illustrated and created photo card and gift product templates for a national photo lab. Eventually, I was offered the opportunity to manage their art acquisition and template implementation workflow. In 2019, I decided to venture out on my own and start my own business.
I have worked on projects from art and design for logos, magazine articles, books, patterns for wallpaper, fabric and gift wrap, wall art, greeting cards, photo cards, and many different types of photo gift products for the consumer and professional trade markets.
I’m inspired by nature, my travels, color, pop culture, other artists, design and art history. I’m especially fascinated by myths, legends and folklore. When I'm not working on my art projects I’m usually spending time with my family, baking sweets, reading or drinking tea.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch. If I don’t have what you need, please let me know. I would love to create something exclusively for you!
