I specialize in figurative charcoal drawing. My work was recently shown and sold at the Saatchi Gallery in London. Current works delve into the realm of symbolism and magic realism.
All of my drawings are meant to be noble representations of individual subjects, and also bring together a wealth of influences, recognition of art history and myth and a contemporary attitude to create images that are of the moment, but hopefully will also remain relevant in the future.

    You have captured the essence of being in nature here, I think. Not by pretending to be a camera but by capturing some essential elements that speak to the various forces/influences we find in nature.

  • Thank you for all your kind and thoughtful comments! I really appreciate them.
