Hi! I'm an Imaginative Realist painter who has had a love for stories and mythology for as long as I can remember. Since I was first able to wield a pencil, I've been creating stories and paintings to accompany them, ever with an eye towards the classical masters who have come before me. Creating illustrated books, filled with evocative stories and full-page illustrations that draw you into another realm, has been something I have been working towards my whole life.

I am so excited to be hard at work on just such a project and to be able to share it with you!


"From Dark Expanse, the Stars" is an illustrated book that will be filled with beautiful, full-page illustrations, stories and poems all themed around Egyptian Mythology. 

Having been fascinated by Egyptian Mythology since I was a child, I am so excited to be creating a book full of these paintings, exploring the different characters and myths. But, I don't want to just create a dry summery of the myths, with the same icons for characters that I have seen so often before. Instead, I want to breathe life into the characters, to make them three-dimensional beings that struggle and triumph and fail. I want to take the static stories from historical myths and weave them into a tapestry of new narratives and interactions that transports you to a world of sand and stars; of light and viscous shadows; of beings that exist beyond time, but for whom the stakes are beyond our imagining.




Patreon is a wonderful platform that allows creators to connect directly with those who love what they are creating! By pledging a monthly subscription of your choice, you get access to the exclusive behind-the-scenes process as the art and writing is created. You also get to be a part of making this project happen! 

Having this Patreon account means that I can afford to work on the book in a more full-time capacity, rather than needing to rely on other work that will consume much of my time. I would love if you would join me on this journey! If you love mythology or fantastical stories, if you love rich, detailed art - then follow along as I create just such a work for you to enjoy! 

As I'm just starting out on this new journey, this page will grow and improve. I've endeavored to choose a ton of awesome rewards for everyone and I'd love to hear what sort of rewards you would like to see as well! Together we can make this community as fulfilling as possible! 




Thank you so much to everyone for the support and encouragement!! Without you, there would be no reason to create art, to begin with! I am so grateful for those of you joining me on this adventure! :) And I hope you have a wonderful time here as well, full of inspiration, curiosities and beautiful art!

Goals
$230 of $400 per painting
The rent of my studio - this accomplishment is huge! This is what it costs me each month to rent my studio where I can work uninterrupted, often for 12+ hours a day. Being able to cover the cost of having this wonderful workspace each month with this project goes such a long way towards being able to focus solely on this book!

If we reach this goal, I will send out a signed mini-print to all my backers with a little thank you note!
