Matthew Cavanaugh has been a gamer 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.

Matt has received several awards including Best in Show in the SoonerCon 27 Miniature Painting Competition. He also took first place for small figures at SoonerCon 26 and first place for large figures at SoonerCon 28.
