Meticulous is an understatement for an artist like Mathew. He is willing to paint something again and again until it meets his standard of perfection. His patience and perfectionism pay off in the end, producing highly detailed, photo-realistic paintings. If he’s taking a break from his painting, he is either immersed in a fiction novel or chatting with people about all things historical, mysterious, and star wars. He often includes these themes in his artwork. Mathew also enjoys craft soda and loves his job at Marshalls. In his downtime, he watches shows on the History Channel like American Pickers and Mysteries of Oak Island. Mathew is also always willing to discuss a conspiracy theory with his studio-mates.
