About

Ravendark Creations is a collaboration between two artists with similar fantastic vision.

Several years ago on a fall afternoon, Arend was out on a peaceful walk through the woods with the Bandersnatch, when out of the thicket came a voice saying “What a lovely Bandersnatch.” What emerged from the woods was a creature of the wild, with thorns and sweetness in equal measure. The fair trollish maiden then wandered with Arend for a time, and finding they saw the world in much the same way, decided to walk together, instead of alone.

Arend creates monsters of all kinds, from frightening to cute. They are sculptural creatures he meets in the world and creatures of his own imagination, both taking inspiration from and giving inspiration to Lara. Lara, being a wild thing, dabbles in drawing, watercolor, oils, ceramics, jewelry making, and occasionally sculpting. Having grown up with fantasy, it is what colors and gives life to their work.
We offer:

One of a kind sculptures (OOAKs). Commissions welcome! If you have an idea and it needs some fine tuning, Lara can do concept sketches to flesh out your idea.

Monster/creature kits, assembled and painted or unassembled and unpainted. These come from castings of Arend’s original sculptures.

Original watercolors or drawings, commissions welcome!

Prints of Lara’s original watercolors and drawings.

And more!
