who i am

I enjoy making custom portrait drawings in my spare time. I started drawing at the age of three and have been sharpening my skills ever since through constant practice. I have taken several life drawing classes and have been drawing portraits professionally since 2002. I work exclusively with graphite art pencils. I enjoy the effect of black and white and the mystery it creates. I like to draw people and have been all my life. I enjoy the challenge of capturing the true spirit of a person on paper.

what i do

I produce realistic, quality, custom graphite portraits from photographs. I take pride in attempting to capture the spirit of the person I am drawing. I pay the utmost attention to detail and strive to create works of lasting beauty.
