The way we perceive one another, the intensity of a relationship and what that would look like in a still moment on paper is what drives me as an artist. I work primarily in pen, graphite, oils, and color pencil. My subject matter consists of a series of realistically rendered portraits incorporating both internal and external features. My works utilize extreme detail through the use of illustrating then using oils to create depth and transparent color into the wood.
Portraiture can communicate strong emotions when incorporating the effects the model and I have on one another. While selecting the most prominent individuals who have touched my life, my portraiture has conceptually developed on a more profound level.
I am captivated by the human body, especially our heads and heart which hold our most sacred thoughts and emotions. Being fascinated with the human condition in which we live our lives, I strive to create work through my vision of all we encompass.
