Matthew Cavanaugh has been a gamer for as long as he can remember, including entering the world of Dungeons & Dragons at the tender age of eight—and never leaving. In 2015 Matt began painting miniature figures for his D&D games. Not satisfied with just tabletop quality, he honed his craft, learning techniques for competition and display figure painting.
In 2018 Matt received a silver medal in the ReaperCon Miniature Painting Contest and Best in Show in the SoonerCon 27 Miniature Painting Competition. He also took first place small figure at SoonerCon 26 and second place small figure at SoonerCon 25.
