About the artist...

In my figurative drawings I like to combine charcoal, ink, and watercolor, which allows me to work quickly, and capture life and energy in as spontaneous and raw a manner as possible. I draw almost exclusively from life, my preference being very short poses. I do not try to tell a story, as much as to capture the movement, the emotion.

In a similar fashion, (even though I also enjoy carving once a while a stone or a beautiful piece of wood), I create most of my sculptures in clay, which allows me to work fast. I can then cast them in bronze, which is time consuming but very rewarding.
