My Bio
I am a painter from Texas that studied in New York City, who now lives in Pennsylvania. My artistic focus is on human anxiety and experience, represented by wildlife or the inhuman. I also like to illustrate things.

I spend way too much time reading books and watching movies.

I will be there! I will be tabling with Hero Complex Gallery and Bottleneck Gallery, doing signings at HCG on Thursday and Saturday from 10 AM - 1 PM. There will be two new print releases, which I am very excited to share, and I will be selling copies of The Hound and the Wolf, Princess Mononoke, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Seven Samurai. Should be fun and very stoked about meeting everyone. Hope to see you there! :)

Hey guys! I hope everyone is doing well. I know submissions have been slow lately, but I have a lot planned and I can't wait to share new images with you guys. Just so you know, I have a facebook page at http://facebook.com/ajfrena.illustration , a tumblr http://wardoggie.tumblr.com , a twitter http://twitter.com/AJFrena and an instagram http://instagram.com/windupartist . I post works in progress and information on what I'm up to on these sites, and soon enough I will be active enough on all to hopefully post up some other interesting things as well. If you enjoy my work, please spread the word! :D
