Philip D. Thomas
I am a sculptor currently based in CT. I have sculpted since I was four years old using Sculpey clay as a medium. I went to college at the University of Hartford and graduated with a Double Major in Ceramics and Sculpture and a Minor in Art History. During my time at the University of Hartford I found my calling in my work. I was encouraged to create my own universe and have continued the enormous project of worldbuilding since then. All of my work features an aspect of this massive world that I have been building since December of 2017.
In addition to sculpting, I have taken up writing to world build and organize my ideas for this universe. I am currently writing a novel that will be the first entry into what I hope will be a massive volume of stories told from characters in different time periods. And I have also started drawing digitally to help bring the world to life, and help me visualize the characters and places that I am creating. I am a fan of all things Sci Fi and Fantasy, and love to research ancient and medieval history. With my work I hope to make my vision for this universe into a reality, bringing entertainment, investment and satisfaction to those who consume it.
