Artist / Illustrator
Hi! Welcome! My name is Troy.
I’m 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 an only-child. Raised in the arctic tundra of small town, Iowa. 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 and black and white Viet Nam conflict footage. I’d draw and paint, play with plastic models, and airplane glue.
I showed excellent drafting skills, natural talent, and – thanks to Grandma’s encouragement – I developed quite the imagination! And a nice little crusty ring of glue under my nose!
Now, even though I live in sunny Florida, and have warmed up (some), I am haunted by our increasingly worrisome future.
To counter these dystopian thoughts, I use the computer to create wry fairy tales and other haunting, oddly funny visions. I fuse stylized graphics with painterly imprecision to generate charming, highly stylized, idyllic scenes in which to escape.
