About

Creativity is separate from the real world for me. It’s a magical world in which I like to immerse myself. When I'm involved in it, I get the wonderful sensation that there are no limits, that anything is possible. My goal is to feel I am a part of what I create, to fall in love with both the process and the finished piece.

My artwork is a part of me in which I can take refuge and feel protected, it allows me to retreat into a world that is kind and reassuring. Being creative means having the chance to become one with what I create to and allow myself to be taken over by it.

I have tried a lot of different drawing mediums in the past but always come back to pencil. I love the simplicity of drawing with pencil on paper and I love how much control it gives me over the finished artwork. It's amazing how something so simple can produce a really strong image.

I spend a lot of time trying to refine and visualise the idea I have in my head – I find community photography websites like “Unsplash” really valuable for creating mood boards. When I have a clearer idea, I mock up my idea in photoshop to see if it would work, then I start the drawing process. During the drawing phase I use a full range of pencils from 2H to 6B. I'll often use watercolour or charcoal for the really dark shadows and back biro or black pigment liner for linear work.
