Matthew’s passion for art and sculpting started at a young age as he grew up in his father’s wood shop. As the son of a carpenter he grew up learning to use his hands to create and fashion wood from drawings into finished designs. This creative environment instilled an unending love for art and design. Through the art books, movies and games of the 1990’s, Matthew found an extreme passion for characters and storytelling.
