Kendon Ryan Oates

Residing in South Carolina with his wife and two children, Kendon has professionally owned and operated a full-time miniature painting business for the last four years.

At the very core of the development of his techniques is an ingrained eagerness to teach and help others. Kendon hosts a plethora of instructional painting videos on Patreon and works closely with his supporters and several other members of the miniature painting community on platforms like Facebook and Discord, helping them to grow and learn as painters.

With Septus Folium, Kendon hopes to find a similar success in extending his learning and teaching: helping others not just paint in a Grim Dark style, but to also be able to write, develop, and bring their own characters and creations.
