I am a professional artist working with both traditional and digital media. My special interest is illustration. Favourite topics are science fiction and fantasy related themes, imaginary worlds and characters which I find in books, songs, or in my own brain.
I am available for commissioned work - please contact me through my website, www.asni.net/contact.php
I also enjoy life drawing and painting still lives, and currently have some works on display and for sale in a couple of local galleries in the Wairarapa. Limited edition prints of some of my work are for sale on my website: www.asni.net
I am dedicated visual arts blogger on the Science Fiction&fantasy fandom website, Amazing Stories (heir to the venerable paper magazine). My blog: amazingstoriesmag.com/author/a…
I randomly feature Deviants every two weeks!
As a day job, I run a web and multimedia design business specializing in developing websites for artists, musicians, and other creative people.
