Artist’s Statement: I like all sorts of arts and crafts, but I particularly enjoy drawing. I’ve always love the simple beauty of art created using nothing more than a pencil and paper. I work with graphite and coloured pencils, and use some pastel, charcoal and acrylic paint in my drawings.
My style is semi-realistic. Mixing fantastic elements with realism, using my experience and skills of realistic portrait artist, I try to create detailed and emotional art. I’m fortunate to have met many talented artists and have learnt a lot from them. I hope to continue growing as an artist, and will try improving my skills in each drawing I create.
