About

Welcome to my Patreon!

You may be familiar with my Fantasy and Sci-fi Illustrations for book covers, games and my own personal vision. I've been selling my art at conventions in the Southeast since 2014 and in 2019 I won my first Chesley Award for Best eBook Cover Illustration. Most of that art is digital, a medium I love. However, I also work in graphite--a medium I've not talked about much till now. My Patreon will be devoted to these personal artworks.


A Wildness in my Soul

Up until now, I've not shared publicly the philosophy behind these artworks. That's what I plan to do here. I'm inviting you on a journey. There will be art posts, process videos, tips and the usual you'd expect from an art Patreon. But there will also be a look inside the place where these images are born--my personal spirituality, what runs through my veins.

Some of you will also have access to poetry, another aspect of my creativity I rarely share. I've been writing poetry and what I call little bits of emotion for close to 30 years. The messages vary. Sometimes they are my soul's yearning for the wild and sometimes they are pieces of my heart's song. I've also been known to attach verses to my paintings.

It's my hope that I will pass on a bit of peace and magic that will stay with you and lift you up.

I have a public post, The Path and Journey, that offers a bit of a backstory for this Patreon.
