I create large-scale drawings using graphite drawing pencils on Arches watercolor paper. The subject matter of my work is narrative portraiture (primarily self-portraits) with elements of symbolism; though clearly realistic in style, these drawings are more conceptual in scope.
The springboard for most of my imagery is personal experience. As a result, the drawings serve as a visual documentation of not only ideas, but also events from my life. Over the past decade, my work has evolved from purely personal experience to also encompass ideas that have a more universal relevance. My intention is for the drawings to extend beyond self-portraits to reflect the often-ironic lunacy of contemporary life and politics.
