Let’s Discuss Your Project

From Graphite to Dreamscapes

With graphite, watercolors, and oils, I embark on a journey of meticulous observation. Intricate hatchings and layered pigments unveil the essence of form. This dedication to the traditional techniques allows me to delve into the surreal, where everyday objects awaken in impossible landscapes whispering fleeting tales of wonder. Time dissolves the moment I sit at my easel. While art flows from intuition, I carefully interpret and employ the fundamental rules – of perspective, composition, light and shadow. These form the backbone of my work. Even within the realm of the surreal, a mastery of these elements is what allows the extraordinary to feel grounded and believable.
My art unfolds in a dance between meticulous observation and the boundless potential of imagination. Graphite strokes build the foundation, watercolor washes infuse life, and layers of oil paint unveil a world far beyond the ordinary. In contrast to modern trends, I embrace the purity of grays and the art of color mixing. With graphite, my left-to-right hatching echoes the legacy of Leonardo himself, despite my natural right-handedness. This dedication to traditional techniques, in both watercolor and oil, allows me to craft timeless works of art. Even my pigments are often handcrafted, minimizing chemical reliance in my creative process.
Rigorous draftsmanship forms the cornerstone of my artwork. Through precise lines and careful shading, I capture the essence of my subject. This mastery of traditional mediums is the key to translating realism into the fantastical, whether it's a timeless portrait or a vibrant landscape teeming with hidden details. Let's turn your vision into a truly personal piece of art. My process begins with a conversation, understanding the emotions and stories you want your art to evoke. From there, we'll work together through sketches and color studies until your dream takes shape on the canvas.
