About Me

My photo
As a child one of my favorite pastimes was to watch and play video games. I loved discovering the new worlds and all of the different life and stories within. In my work I want to bring this feeling of discovery and adventure to the viewer. I want to immerse them in the possibilities of the unknown and explore new spaces, heroes, villains, and species. I try to combine reality and history to make the most believable worlds possible, while still being firmly rooted in fantasy. I do extensive research on culture and societal norms before beginning a piece and use this research to build convincing concept pieces. My work reflects my interests in Steampunk, Cyberpunk, Medieval/Renaissance/Feudal society, as well as more whimsical elements like Alice in Wonderland and Mythologies from all over the globe. With every piece I do I try to push it further than my last, whether it be in concept or in execution. I want to challenge what people expect when they think of fantasy and give them places and people that they wouldn’t have considered before.

What I've been up to lately...

...isn't much. I got dragged to Iowa for a week and had to help my Uncle and his family move to Arizona, and my roommates got a new cat, plus, to top it off, I'm trying this whole "Get in Shape" thing which is going..oaky. I'm really not all that fond of sweat to be honest but it's summer and it'd be nice to wear shorts at some point....

ANYWAY, here's the little bits of art I've managed to squeeze out in between Zumba and kitty cuddles.

The first is a quick speed painting to try out some new brushes

The second started as a study and then I'm not sure what happened but here it is.
