Artist Statement -

In my work as a fine artist, I use the mediums of graphite, coloured pencil and oil, in the styles realism, photo-realism, trompe l'oeil and portraiture, Ideas come from literature, metaphors, and the real world.

Rather than the imitation of appearance, my concern is with the essence of the subject. In trompe l'oeil, it is the hardness and softness of guns and lingerie, which, when mounted in shadow boxes, become real.

In the series, 'Dante's Divine Comedy', executed in graphite, the object was to depict the universality of his ideas as they appear today.

In all of my work, realism is my focus and goal.
