2021 Calendars

Looking ahead to 2021, I am putting more and more energy into trying to make it a better year for myself and for others. This will likely be the year we see progress with a vaccine for the virus that has disrupted so many of our lives. This will also be a year of reassembling, and reimagining, our day to day lives, social activities and overall wellbeing. With that thought, I am excited to announce that 2021 Calendars are now available for pre-order!

The song, written by Martin Phipps, has also won the Royal Television Society Award for Best Original Title Soundtrack.

Project: Cover Art for Steampunk Paranormal Romance Novel

Project: Cover Art for Steampunk Paranormal Romance Novel

When I was growing up, I always enjoyed reading tales of myth & magic. My photography and art often reflects my love of fantasy literature and epic stories, often with female protagonists overcoming great challenges while encountering with the otherworldy and the divine. In Spring 2010, I was introduced to the literary world as an artist when I was asked by author O.M. Grey to create the cover for her debut novel Avalon Revisited…
