We are so very proud to introduce the first official book featuring my art, printed under my own Darq Matter publishing imprint. Comprising Artwork spanning 2003 to present day-Gods and Monsters, is a chimerical odyssey through the nether worlds and personal demons of my subterranean imaginings.

A limited edition of 500 has been individually signed by myself, and is available to order now from my website only, for just $25 including shipping and handling within the US...Order your copy now!
Please spread the word wherever you can. The more successful this book becomes, the quicker I can start working on Volume Two! Also, please have a look at my new and improved website.
Begun originally in August of 2007, this surreal painting went through about five incarnations, before it evolved into the piece you see here.
The word 'mind' evokes something which is an attentive supervisor, or a nanny for our impulses, and I wanted to explore the state then, of being absent minded-that which becomes detached and seperate from the process of thinking-symbolised here by a fragile egg, taking flight from a rooted muse.
Called 'Nature of the Fragile Mind', I feel this is one of my strongest works, and you can bid on it by clicking the picture below:
The weekend was spent completing my current piece-a sort of post Valentines character,called 'Mourning Star' whose origins began as a tatoo idea for a freind, and which I ultimately fleshed out into the piece you see before you. Its an acrylic on panel and her tail is in gold paint, so its all shiney. The concept reads thus:
'And through a congealed crimson sky, the musing eye at the core of the brittle world, stared 'pon the mortal soul of man, and wept tears of molten gold...'
Anyway, you know the drill by now-available for seven days on EBay-starting bid $30, or dare I hope it be snapped up for $200...
This piece has been gestating in my head, possibly now for three years. In actuality, it was to be the concluding piece to herald the end of the urban fairies, but at the time it felt too visceral, and didn't truly form its meaning or its title until recently, when somewhat older, uglier and wiser, it took on a whole different resonance for me.
I can't tell you how utterly proud I am of this beautiful work, astutely titled "Done" it's in oils which I am having a love affair with at the moment, its on a 16" x 20" stretched canvas, and I've put a number of limited edition prints on EBay:
I was wondering if someone could perhaps make me a 50 x 50 icon of Crysta with it saying Fern Gully Club on it, it can be animated 15KB, I need it for my Fern Gully Club on deviantART. I also need an ID saying The Fern Gully Club with any pictures on it, about 400 x 250, could anyone help me out?
This new piece was inspired by a watercolour piece I painted for my wife which was stolen in transit somewhere between New Jersey and Mexico, I reworked the theme of a dark elfin empress and her dragon companion, poised and ready to take flight on the lightening tendrils of an impending storm.
Entitled 'Storm Chasers' and Painted in oils on 16" x 20" canvas, the original is available as a Buy it Now, or as a $6 limited edition print of 20 from the following links:
I'm starting up a new Enchanted Candle Line & have been doing the pictures for each candle on my own. Wanted to see what the response was from some of you about what you really thought about the feel of a handful of the pictures. I have been turning varrious people into faeries complete with a story surrounding them, that will be included with an activation process with the candle.
This is my latest piece, which is entitled 'The Place where I live'. It very much has the feel of one of my Urban Fairie pieces,and is filled with a retinue of personal influences and symbolism-a kind of pop art fantasy piece if you will. I'm really pround of the amount of detail I've accomplished for this one,so if you want a fairy piece with a little more meat on its bones symbolically and artisically speaking, she ends in a day and one hour
