Artist / Illustrator
Hi! Welcome! My name is Troy.
I am an award winning multi-discipline artist, currently focusing on Digital Painting.
I hold a BFA in Painting and Illustration from The Savannah College of Art and Design.
I was raised in the arctic tundra of small town, Iowa. An only-child and naturally introspective, I spent many frigid winter hours in quiet contemplation. With chiclets chattering and ice-glazed piggies crying, I’d warm at my grandparents’ kitchen table. Watching Tex Avery and Max Fleischer cartoons, black and white Viet Nam conflict footage. I’d draw and paint, play with plastic models and airplane glue.
I showed excellent drafting skills and natural talent, and – thanks to Grandma’s encouragement – I developed quite the imagination! And a nice crusty ring of glue under my nose!
But now, even though I live in sunny Florida, and have warmed up, I’m increasingly haunted by thoughts of a dystopian future.
To counter these thoughts I create wry fairytales and other haunting, oddly funny visions. I fuse stylized computer graphics with painterly imprecision to generate charming, highly stylized, idyllic scenes, in which I investigate intuition, supernatural power and the interconnection between nature, anima and technology.
