My Story

My artwork leans towards realism mixed with an illustrative style. I strive to create portraits that combine my style with the subjects' personality. The majority of my work is monochromatic; I enjoy muted tones yet occasionally love to inject a striking highlight tone. 

Influences include folk art from Mexico, the art nouveau movement, botanical drawings and artists such as Lucien Freud, Picasso, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and Chuck Close. I am a modern traditionalist in the respect that I firmly believe in the craft aspect of creating beautiful pieces of fine art.
