During my career as a freelance illustrator and concept artist, I have been fortunate enough to work with some amazing clients, across a variety of different projects, ranging from video games, TV, advertising, board games and book covers.

I have always had a great passion for fantasy, ever since I was young, rummaging through my parent's book collection, I would be transported to other worlds by the beautiful cover illustrations and fantastic stories.
It was this sense of wonder that drove me to create my own worlds, to try to capture that feeling that I had when I was a child.

Today, I work full time as a freelance illustrator and concept artist, and I strive to bring that passion and sense of wonder to the work I create for my clients.

I hope to work with you soon!

Unfortunately, the game ended up being too ambitious for this amount of funding and the company was forced to close it's doors before the game was completed.

Matthew was awesome to work with. The rough idea I had in my head for an armor piece from my novel was perfectly rendered and executed to my liking. Well worth the money. His skills are top-notch and he will give any project you have in mind the quality it deserves without leaving you in the dark as to what he's doing. When he says he will have it ready at a certain date, he means it. Couldn't...
