I graduated in 2007 with a BA in fine art. Currently I am pursuing a career in illustration and hope to one day soon publish my very own children's book.
Even as a tiny kid I’ve always drawn, scribbled, made stuff out of tissue, and done all sorts of creative projects. I loved to make things up from my imagination, but when I was about eleven my brothers introduced me to fantasy and science fiction novels and since then I’ve taken a rabid interest in that genre. (And I couldn’t stop reading those books!) Some of my art is inspired by the books I read, but I also illustrate my own tales.Some things that I love (besides books and art) are: my twin sister, the Båha'i Faith, the ocean, felines, snails, monkeys, chocolate, and shiny things. ***UPDATE Feb. 2011: I have an Etsy shop! Check it out: FamiliarOddlingsStop by my deviantArt page at dragonbeh.deviantart.com for more artwork and faster responses.Please feel welcome to email me "dragonbehin @ yahoo.com" (without spaces) to inquiure about commissioning me or any other questions you may have.*** Thanks for coming by!'O Son of Man! I loved thy creation, hence I created thee. Wherefore, do thou love Me, that I may name thy name and fill thy soul with the spirit of life.' - Baha'u'llah (Click for information on the Baha'i Faith)
