On Completing my Fine Arts Degree, I freelanced as a Graphic Designer for various Design Studios. My career steered towards my passion for Illustrations, Architectural perspectives, Portraiture and Life drawing.
With my Life drawings, I work with the model (male or female) as a constant reference. I am interested in capturing the gesture of the pose, the essence of the sitter. I observe how the light plays on the subject, the tones & forms that are created. Great consideration is given to facial expressions; face, subtle hand gestures, that give an impression, a mood - elements that may give an insight to the sitter.
I use mediums and techniques that allow me to work quickly - pastels, charcoal, pencil - as the model may only hold the pose for only a short time.
In addition to Exhibitions and Life Drawings, I undertake commission work for Portraiture. These are unique custom made art of men, women and children. I also do paintings/sketches of pets as well. With Portraiture Art, the customer supplies me with a good quality photo(s), that can be emailed to me from any where around the world. I discuss with the client what medium and style that they prefer and progress from there. These portraits make great gift ideas and are cherished by everyone.
