I always painted and drawn 'odd' things, since the day I could pick up a pencil. Though my mother tried to discourage me, warning me that all artists 'starve to death in the gutter', she sent me to Pratt Institute to follow my dream of developing my talents. I graduated and am now, proud to say...'starving to death', but not in the gutter. I have always been inspired by Folklore, Faery Tales, Sci-Fi and fantasy books, Myths & legends and really good movies. I love Darke images and tales that involve dreams, time, mysticism and magic. Many of my art images come from images I get from stories I read or have written, from waking dreams, and the world around me. Right now I am attempting to bring my artwork into the Scary Realm of Publication, be it magazines, record or book covers, cards, or games. I've designed tattoos, jewelry, web pages, illustrated newsletters for non-profit groups & poetry magazines, but so far, no 'big fish' have bitten. If they do, I suppose I'll no longer be allowed to be a part of Elfwood, but until then...
