Illustrator/Concept Artist

I have been told I am funny, friendly, abrasive, a "Big personality", I am terrible about talking about myself though. I spend most of my time painting/researching, I travel often and have friends all over the country. I'm a bit obsessed with research and details.

If you are curious about my credentials I grew up in the Washington, D.C area. I have an associates of Web Design that I earned at Montgomery College. During my last semester I painted the Wheel of Time playing cards and was diagnosed with Dyslexia. I have since branched out towards film, storyboarding and concept art.

WORKS OF NOTE and AWARDS

*The "Collector's Edition: WoT Playing Cards" won the "Best Licensed Toy/Game Product" from the first-ever The Geekie Awards!

I won the People's Choice Best Art in Show at JordanCon 7 & 8. As well as Judges choice at JordanCon 6

TESTIMONIALS

"Ariel was really great to work with. I had some definite ideas of what I wanted for the book cover for "Damselle in Distress" and gave them to her and she did a great job working them into the art, as well as creating some really clever ideas of her own. She poured a lot of time and effort into it, and I really appreciated the fact that she wanted to make it the best it could be." ~Kiley Kellermeyer, Author
"The client is impressed, I'm happy with the product. Everyone is super impressed with both her work ethic and quality. They can't stop talking about it." ~James Fox, CEO Dawnrunner Productions

"What a joy to work with! Ariel is intuitive, collaborative, and has outstanding instincts. I know it's a cliche' but her figures really do "come alive," each an individual with a personality all their own. The very competitive price was simply the "icing on the cake!" I look forward to working with her again... and again... and again!"
~J. H. Moore, Author

I first found out about Infinity Design Studios while I was painting a portrait of the owner's children as a surprise Christmas gift for his wife. The owner, Patrick Kennedy was very happy with my Illustration skills and pleased to find out I am also a Web Designer.
