About The Artist

I like that place between reality and unreality.  I think it’s the most valid place that an artist could ever exist.  To live exclusively in the “real”, would make me miss a whole lot of possibilities!  If I were to live only in the “unreal”, well then I would be categorically insane…  Living on the balance, with my feet on solid ground, my hands stretched up into the clouds makes me whole and comfortable as a creative person.

I make virtual worlds.  I make 3d printed sculpture.  Sometimes I make music and sometimes I even make musical instruments.  Sometimes I sculpt in clay.  Some of <– these things make me money.  I organize a fantasy festival called “Enchanted Ground Faery Fest” that kicks off at the end of June of every year which like a goblin gobbles up my time from time to time every time, and will probably do so until the end of …  I do this because I love creative people who focus on fantasy themes, and Faery Fest Inc. is able to showcase them.
