About the Artist

Welcome to my dark and macabre world of art. I thrive on creating mysterious visions to life. Through my work, I explore realms of death, the ethereal, and the macabre, attempting to weave them into my version of a fantasy world.

Artistic Journey:

Ever since I can remember, I've been captivated by the juxtaposition of darkness and beauty. As a child, I used to copy dark art and photos that I liked. As I grew in age and skill, I realized I wanted to create an entire world based on the themes that spoke most to me.


My art draws inspiration from the depths of the human psyche, and the mysteries of the shadows. I love reading about deadly characters and seeing expansive landscapes. Books, films, and music all influence my art in various ways.

Signature Themes:

I specialize in crafting haunting imagery featuring skulls and powerful female characters. I have heard people describe my work and characters as enigmatic, alluring, and morbid.

Artistic Process:

Each of my creations is a labor of love. I mainly work in the Procreate app on the iPad, but have started dabbling with acrylic paints. To watch timelapses and works-in-progress shots, follow me on Instagram.
