is my passion. I started drawing when I was very young and ever since
making art has been at the core of my existence. It's always thrilling
to experience the moment a picture/drawing takes on a life of its own.
A great portrait goes far beyond merely capturing a faithful likeness.
The physical process of drawing, for me, creates a unique dynamic
energy. An artist has infinite opportunities to edit what he's observed,
whether working from life or from a photo, playing things up or down in
order to create something that goes far beyond the surface. I use my
reference photos, as a starting point. I alter them significantly in
order to achieve a final composition that best conveys my sense of that
I hope you enjoy my work.
