Valerhon grew up in a small, remote Colorado town where he spent much of his free time reading ancient history and mythology. and writing stories of the worlds he dreamed up. Never serious about art his perspective changed in the 1990’s when he began writing and illustrating roleplay games, magazine articles and, collectible card games such as Alien vs. Predator, Babylon 5, Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time, and Tomb Raider among others.

He became a full time freelancer in 2007 creating digital paintings that have now become his trademark. He has worked with several well known photographers, transforming their works into a hybrid of realism and supernatural.

His favorite themes are mythology, religion, and transhumanist ideas. He currently resides in Phoenix, AZ in a house whose interior design is a mythic forest. He’s a huge fan of Calvin and Hobbes.
