ARTIST STATEMENT

Working primarily in colored pencils I create contemporary realism works featuring a straightforward approach to representational art. Observing closely, looking past the obvious, my goal is to capture and portray objects and their physical appearance in reality. I desire those that see my work to discover the unique beauty in everyday objects and places.

Coming from a background in art direction, graphic design and illustration, I make use of dramatic lighting, strong composition and a full range of values.
