I have a wall full of Xs and this is by far my favorite. It's absolutely beautiful. I love the elephants and the xenophile definition. My visitors are constantly commenting on this lovely piece of art

About

Furiously curious

I've been a professional illustrator and calligrapher for many years, but only recently have I begun to release the curious creatures that have long inhabited my head and my sketchbook. They are happy to be running free at last!

My deepest thanks to those who convinced me to open this shop, and to all who enjoy my prints and paintings.

If you'd like to know a little more about my process, my website shows some of my paintings & custom toys in various stages of completion. (Please copy & paste link):
