Ana Davenport

This watercolour was done years ago, and served as the first inspiration for my in-progress steampunk fantasy novel. Ana lives a double life as a governess by day, and a city prowling vigilante by night. Stay tuned for more artwork from the Clockwork Universe.

The Banshee Queen

This is a rough painting of Queen Clíodhna (Klee-uh-nah), the banshee queen. Pictured left in her glamoured form (so that she appears human), and right in her true form. She features in the current chapter of Mercy that I’m working on, and I had the urge to draw her on the iPad. Banshees are infamous … More The Banshee Queen

While this is by no means an exhaustive list, it does bring together 12 of my most loved characters. Each character … More The New Pantheon

I’m currently hard at work finishing up the final touches on the second book of The Ninth Circle trilogy, Strength. In honour of the upcoming release, I thought it was high time I posted some more art. So here’s … More Three of a Kind
