Projects:   "The expansive civilizations of mankind are long fallen and forgotten, a victim of their own hubris.  As arcane fallout soaks the land, the centuries and millennia pass by. The world gives rise to new and unique creatures. Magic works in tandem with natural selection, and mana-touched species thrive alongside their natural counterparts. Welcome to the Encroaching Wilds." While "The Encroaching Wilds" was born from my three passions (Painting, Fantasy settings, and Wildlife), It’s my love for wildlife in particular that led me to conceive this project. There’s a certain magic and wonder that exists in our natural world, a magic that I feel is taken for granted far too often. We’re desensitized to just how special a creature’s adaptations for survival can be. I hope, by approaching fantasy creatures and monsters with a naturalist’s eye, that I can bring the viewer to rediscover some of the magic that exists in our own natural world.
