What I do 

My story-telling, colored pencil artwork is often recognizable, even before the viewer sees my name on it. I like to express the human experience, whether drawing a person or animal. I try for detail and an engaging composition. In y min is the masterful illustrations and paintings of generations past. I believe there is nothing that this pigment in its precision pointed stick, can’t do or that oil paint could do better. My competitive nature is out to prove that. I still approach my work like a painter. Layering in the old-school oil painterly way. Never striving for photo-realism, I love to see the artist’s hand in work. Like that perfect, genius brush stroke in a master’s painting, you will see all of my pencil marks, if possible. I want to inspire. Not only with what a media can do, but what a person can do. After all, a well-trained artist is a person who can do anything.
