    Hearthstone Fables reveals a world of mystery & wonder, where journeys begin everywhere, and a welcoming hearth is always close at hand.

    I've always been enamored with mythic storytelling, both through written narrative and the visual arts. Humanity often tends to have a sense of displacement...a nagging feeling that we are missing something, that we are separated in some degree from an ineffable source. I love the way in which myth and folklore can grapple so poetically with these yearnings...symbol and metaphor whisper inklings of mysteries that remain just beyond our fingertips.

    When I was young, this love of mythic storytelling led me to the vibrant world of Greek mythology, and I eventually found myself earning my undergraduate degree in Classics (Greco-Roman Civilization and Languages), where I delved into ancient, archetypal stories that are so abundant in symbolism.

    Nature is a huge source of inspiration and rejuvenation in my life, and the role of nature in storytelling has always resonated with me - especially in the way it is so often illustrated as an intersection of the natural and the supernatural. I grew up in the sweeping prairies of Montana and have settled in Western Washington, where inspiration for whimsical woodland scenes is available in spades.

    In the magical world of Hearthstone Fables, I've sought to combine my passion for folklore & mythic storytelling with my lifelong love of art. I try to tell simple, quiet narratives that convey a sense of wonderment at the sacred world, with the various flora and fauna of nature weaving enchanting stories together.
