My art has an illustrative style, and is always based, first and foremost, on observation and drawing. However, it is constantly evolving, and I enjoy experimenting with new materials and methods to see where they take my work.
I always try to convey something that I have seen or perhaps felt.

I am inspired by social situations;  people, relationships, emotions and reactions. I like to work quickly, recording sketches in situ, in front of the subject to get the maximum involvement and feeling. I also like to inject my reaction into the piece as well. In this way, I believe a drawing can have energy and be all the more interesting to view.
