Artist Statement

My art revolves around pencil drawing, however, within these drawings I like to create many details in order to communicate the drawing better. My area of expertise lies in illustrating images and recapturing them as my own - particularly in still life drawing. I still have much to learn and room to grow as an artist, however I am more than willing to work hard and take opportunities to help progress my involvement with the visual arts.
