Be Strange & Unusual

Creating artwork and making things with my hands has always been apart of my life, some of my first memories were of looking at illustrated dictionarys & encyclopedias. (Not to mention watching The Nightmare Before Christmas on loop) Those passions have lead me into mechanical engineering and being an artist with a darker twist. My hope is to inspire others to persue their creative curiosities and bring joy with my art.


A couple years ago after scouring thru the depths of the internet for some cool décor for our DnD gaming room, we found the amazing paper crafting model designs from Gurko Studios of his wonderfully made dragons. After creating two dragons by hand on our own, it inspired me to get back into all of the forms of art that I did from my youth. Starting off small with drawing & linework, then exploring new media forms with alcohol inks and markers, and then it lead me to finally make some social media accounts just for my art. By posting about the projects made in the studio here, people began to notice notice something special in the background, it was Ripley, the Fire Dragon that started it all! Through the amazing encouragement from supporters on Instagram and Tiktok, I finally decided to take the plunge and begin selling my own art as well as paper crafting kits for others to enjoy! So far it has been an awesome experience and have even been fortunate to even work with Ilyad Gurko from Gurko Studios, the author of the Fire Dragon (and much more). Currently, I am drawing art illustrations, exploring new mediums of art making, while making kits for others to explore paper crafting. At this current time I am learning how to design my own 3D models for even more possibilities and expanding my scope past mechanical engineering!
