Immerse Yourself in a Deep Exploration of my Creative Process.

As the work progresses on the novels, so too does it progress on a visual front. Indeed many of the scenes written for book two and three were inspired first by drawings and paintings.

As this project continues to unfold, it has become very apparent that the visual side: illustrations, paintings and even the bronze sculpture are as important as the stories themselves. 

There are now two published Companion Sketchbooks – one for each of the first two novels. They include behind the scenes looks into the creation of the characters and the places in the land of Eryos.

I take you on a walk through not only the concept sketches and drawings, but also how the writing is evolving and what I love about the characters. I invite you to peak inside my cross-disciplinary creative process to see how it all unfolds.
