"Nature & Nostalgia – those are the subjects that I am, pardon the pun, drawn to. I am a hyper-realistic artist and the 'devil is in the details' – the more details, the better. The medium of colored pencil affords me the ability to hone in on that aspect. Nature has so many nuances to it that detail is imperative to capture the essence of a living being, whether it is flower or animal. Nostalgia also lends itself to detail. The more detail, the more the image will come alive for the viewer – evoking their own memories attached to that particular object in the drawing. Patience, is the key to my art. Most pieces I spend about an hour per square inch. More complex pieces can be twice that time. It is not uncommon for a piece to have more than one hundred hours put into it."
