From superhero comics to the illustrations of Frank Frazetta, Matt has always had an interest in fantasy. Matt was born and raised in the Delaware area. He attended the Pennsylvania School of Art and Design and graduated in 1991. Since beginning his professional career in 1992, he has created many images for a wide range of products and clients including video gamecovers, collectible card images, book covers, collectors plates and fantasy pocket knives to name a few. The paintings of noted illustrators like N.C. Wyeth, Norman Rockwell and Maxfield Parrish are among his traditional influences.
Also the films of Walt Disney, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are sources of inspired imagery. Clients include Harper/Collins, Penguin, Leisure, Bantam and Doubleday books. Other clients include G.T. Interactive Software, Wizards of the Coast, Milton Bradley, and The Franklin Mint.
Like many illustrators , Matt is influenced by the wonderful work and technological advancements currently taking place in the illustration field.
In the last few years he has moved to doing most of his work in 'digital paint'.
He must point out, however , the computer is not the "push button" solution many perceive it to be. The same craft and attention to design must be present for the artwork to succeed no matter what the medium.
Matt is also a member of the Society Of Illustrators, New York and the Association for Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists (ASFA).
He currently lives in Delaware.
