Artist, Painter, Fantasy & Science Fiction Illustrator
"I aim to evoke a sense of mystery and wonder in the audience, to make them want to see what's around each corner, and to give them the sense that they have peered into another world. For me, success in painting is when the audience's first impression is fascination, when the work taps into their inherent curiosity and inner wonder."
