My dark art explores the idea of a narrative portrayal, with believably realistic characters, in a slightly unsettling realm. I paint people I know, places I’ve explored and animals that have crossed my path. My mission is to create work that invokes the need to explore a wider narrative, carefully wrapped within the confines of a dark world. My hope is that the curiosity you experience will transform your preconceptions of what dark art means to you, and make it much more acceptable for you to fall in love with the notion that through tragedy and loss, we can find what it is that makes us human.

I work in a wide range of mediums and techniques. For my paintings, I primarily work in oil. I’ve been a pen and ink artist for as long as I can remember, as well. My sculptural process starts with clay, then molded in silicone and finally, cast in resin. Other work I’ve done includes special effects makeup for films and my horror photography, writing and screenplays, production design in filmmaking, murals, set design in theatrical productions and fine art photography.
