In the gallery imagery below, you can see a quick sampling of some of my work. It’s divided into categories or genres with artist descriptions for each below the gallery. I hope you enjoy…and if you don’t, well, everyone’s a critic.
I greatly enjoy developing life-like renderings and working with the human form. I value a realistic approach to my subject matter and I think that caring and attention to detail is highly apparent in my sketches and portraits. I produce works in this genre with a variety of media including oils, pastels, graphite, and conte.
As well as working in the traditional artistic styles and realism, I’ve also invented my own truly unique form of creative expressionism. I began developing works with an intense emotional and psychological impact that truly defy traditional classification. This technique creates highly detailed and emotionally charged works that demand the viewers attention on a 3-dimensional level. Thus, I labeled them ECT3D -or- Emotionally Charged Textural 3-D.
By immersing myself in the depths of positive and negative human emotion, I’m able to use color, texture, and substantially relevent 3-dimensional objects to create a masterfully integrated and truly original construct of visual and emotional artistry. I know that’s a mouthful but they really are cool, especially when seen, touched and experienced in person.
Monsters, SciFi and Fantasy Art
I’ve always had a deep fascination with the science fiction & fantasy realm. I’ve been drawing monsters, robots, superheroes, aliens, creepy crawly things and all manner of weirdness since as soon as I could hold a pencil. I quickly discovered I had a knack for this thing and bringing my own curiosities to life. And so it began…
My work in this genre shares the same detail and intensity as my traditional portrait work, but adds a deeply imaginative and highly creative twist with a bit of the macabre peppered in for good measure. My renderings go far beyond normal reality and take the viewer on a journey into my mind for which I’m more than happy to be the guide. And I think that’s best because there’s a lot of clutter in there and anyone else would probably get lost.
Often times, I don’t have a forethought to what I’ll draw. I just start moving my pencil and a shape emerges. It feels like I’m not really creating the creatures, they already exist in their own subliminal world, hidden just below the surface of my paper. They merely require my pencil to take their leap into our reality.
