Drawing/painting addict who finds the morbid and dark, beautiful and calming. I don’t have a style or niche. I’m still learning and honing my skills. I prefer to create pieces encompassing gothic, horror, romantic, surreal or lowbrow elements.
I specialize in drawing, painting.
One of the scariest characters I've ever seen. The most frightening of the vampires from the movie "Fright Night" (1985). I had to draw her as a form of therapy. Thumbs-up for the art department on that movie! If she had had white eyes instead of the red eyes in the movie, I would've been irreparably damaged! :) (Pencil on paper, size A4).

Purposely unfinished piece of work featuring a female with freckles. My focus was capturing a captivating look in her eyes. Mainly a practice/study piece.
Trying to meld the moody tones of pulp noir with the playful romanticism of 1950s lifestyle illustration. Inspired by the fairground scene from the 1942 Veronica Lake classic, This Gun for Hire.
Inspired by autumn, the occult and secret societies.

It always amazes me that, for such an icon of cinema, Boris Karloff’s Mummy only ever appears on screen, in his bandages, for just a few seconds; but maybe that’s part of the whole enigma and its longevity, and why perhaps the idea of imagining him in something new felt so appealing.
