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.

    Wonderful pastel landscape. I love your chosen palette, and your sky is spectacular.

  • Thank you Bev. This was a small piece, 8 × 10″ so it was easy to get a loose feel.
