Artist Rob Gonsalves was born in Toronto, Canada in 1959. During his childhood, he developed an interest in drawing from imagination using various media.  By age twelve, his awareness of architecture grew as he learned perspective techniques and began to do his first paintings and renderings of imagined buildings.

"You seek that which would bestow upon you the right to rule: the king’s jewel. The Arkenstone. It is precious to you beyond measure. I understand that. There’s gems in the mountain that I too desire. White gems of pure starlight.”
