I am a figurative and portrait artist captivated by the beauty of the human form. I love to blur the boundaries between realism and idealism. I consider myself a realist artist who portrays my subjects as they appear in life but in their best possible light. With each new artwork, I find myself challenged technically, not only as an artist but as a storyteller too.
Over the years my love for great art and design had enabled me to focus my love of learning new skills and knowledge. From creating digital 3D models and music videos to Web design and special effects this rich tapestry of experience is now my creative foundation.
Predominantly a digital artist I explore and embrace the techniques used by old masters to capture my subjects. I work from life and use photo reference where necessary utilising my many years working as a photographer. Layering opaque colours or glazes and blending as you would oils but in a digital medium gives it hard to distinguish results from real-world paints.
As a portrait and figurative painter I feel it is necessary to not only capture a likeness but to engage the viewer in ways that cannot be accomplished with a photograph or other mediums.
