Ireland
I am a freelance artist from Dublin, Ireland who studied at Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology. My preferred medium is charcoal but I also work with oil paint, pen and ink, coloured pencil, and photography.

I have done album covers for black metal bands including Elysian Blaze, Lyrinx, Niflheim, and Sombres Forêts. While the work I do presently still reflects that style, most noticeably my preference for near monochrome colour pallets, I usually draw from themes and subject matter that resonate with me on a more personal level.

My artwork often serves as a creative outlet for aspects of my inner world which I attempt to translate into the language of imagery. Because of this I am usually more attracted to creating atmosphere and mood in my artwork than concentrating on detail and realism.

I am afraid that I would have to say no. When I first began online I was doing requests (mostly album covers) and not only did I discover that I could not keep up with them, but that having deadlines hanging over me is stressful and quite negatively impacts my work. Perhaps more importantly, I also found that once I did one or two thing that many people liked, it quickly became all anyone ever wanted me to do, and that gets boring very quickly.

Now, that said, I am fully open to suggestions that people have of things that they would like to see (even if it is more of the same), just understand that I am an absolutely terrible procrastinator (I have about ten unfinished projects from over the past few years that have yet to see the light of day on DeviantArt - something I intend to finally remedy this coming year), so, even if I do like an idea that someone suggests, it may be a very very long time before I actually act on that inspiration.

My apologies.
