Artist, San Francisco, CA
California based realist artist. Working with ink and pencil to create drawings of human figure, landscapes, and cityscapes.
Creating visual works of art, specifically ink drawings, have always been a part of my life. I experimented with different types of artwork—abstraction, impressionism, realism, figure drawing. As well as different mediums—oil, watercolor, pencil, photography— until I found my passion and style.
This experimentation gave me an eye for composition and helped me to create cohesive drawings. I mainly use black ink pens on white paper because the contrast of black and white is powerful and invoking to the viewer. I create images of raw landscapes, loud cityscapes, as well as figure drawing that displays the emotion of human life. When I see something that I want to draw, I draw it from what my eyes perceive.
My purpose with art is to bring the viewer within the scene and inspire them to see what I saw when creating the drawing. I fell in love with the organic forms of the world around, as well as the human figure, and plan to continue drawing the beauty I see.
