DeeDee Davies is a long-time fan of fantasy and dark art. Boris Vallejo and Chris Achilleos are a couple of her early inspirations. She first started creating 3D art in 2004 when accidently stumbling across the Poser platform. Davies was fascinated with game artwork and animation and Poser allowed her to try her hand at it. After a few years in the field she has settled into Carrara Pro for modelling, Vue Studio for landscapes and rendering, and Poser Pro for figure posing and animation.
Her influences include vampires, cheesy 80s horror and fantasy films, heavy metal and the works of Poe, Lovecraft & their contemporaries. Davies tries to storylines into her images to make them more interesting, and to use or modify existing items in different ways to make them unique.
She currently works on book covers with a prolific horror publishing company. At least fifteen of her book covers are out in print.
