About the Artist

Art for me is a journey in which I delve into the human spirit. I paint with oils, and draw with charcoal, graphite and ink. I choose subjects that are alive with movement and spirit. I feel privileged to portray life and am lucky to come from an artistic background.

What I do / the process
  1. Take a photo
  2. Go home
  3. Create an original A4 drawing
