I am a color pencil photo realism artist living and working in Indiana. My work is inspired by the natural world and its beauty. I like to showcase the details and color variations within each subject matter. Color pencil is a great tool to achieve such things. This medium, while at times slow, allows me to layer and layer the pencil to build up to the desired affect. I am also a big animal lover and started creating portraits of my own dogs. That has lead to me being commissioned to create custom pet portraits as gifts or memorials. Ultimately, I want people to view my work and have the sense of pleasure and delight that color pencil is capable of producing such detailed and colorful pieces.
