Surros Gallery - Visual Art

Surros Gallery

Welcome to Surros Gallery at!

This site is a personal art site and therefore does not necessarily present itself as a polished portfolio full of eulogies to my professional accomplishments. It has been around since 2003, which makes it pretty old now that I think about it. The name means dragon-dragon in Japanese, because I love dragons and I wasn't too great at names back then (case in point: my leopard gecko was named Gecko). I've taken to using the name Surros Gallery since it's much easier to remember, but this URL continues to be my home on the internet. It still functions as a repository for many of my creative ventures, from art to photography to silly site pages, so take a look around and enjoy!

About The Artist

I really love dragons! I even draw them occasionally. I was born in the year of the dragon, so perhaps that contributes to my mild obsession, but more likely it's because dragons are really cool. I'm not talking just high fantasy dragons like Smaug, though. I love them all! From the Chinese imperial dragon to the myriad European dragons to Quetzelcoatl from Mesoamerica, if it's magical, slightly serpentine, and potentially flies, it's instantly my favorite. I tend to work dragons into all of my worlds somehow. They can be anything from powerful divine beings to dangerous but mundane animals to household pets.

Things about me that don't involve dragons: I graduated in 2010 with a BFA in Art Studio and currently work as a part time art instructor. My goal is to be a freelance artist and a published author. I was born in Texas but now live in Colorado, where I get the snow I've always dreamed of as a kid. I'm a habitual googler so I know a lot of random facts. I think it's important to know how stuff works in order to draw it properly.

Unfortunately, I inherited chronic depression from my grandmother. I started getting treatment for it in late 2016 and things have gotten better for me. No longer do I flip out and scream at others! No longer do I sink into a deep pit of self-loathing after even a mildly stressful interaction with someone! I'm still working on getting motivated to achieve life goals, but who isn't? If any of that sounds like you or something you go through, please talk to someone who can help because it's NOT you, it's an illness. Reaching out can be the hardest part of the process. I also can't recommend Costco's pharmacy enough if you have to get medications. The membership is worth it.
