Our eyes are trained to scan over what we see. Not really looking and knowing what really lies beneath. I like to observe and understand nature and why it looks the way it is. My observations consist of looking for the faint tints and shades in the world. Color makes things so much more complex and with the shades of gray you can concentrate on simply details; the things that change color in a picture. There is a love for capturing and seeing things in black and white, or even neutral browns in the gallery of mine. I only use color for a focal point, or some say attention-getting devices. My pieces are mostly consisted of portraits and everyday life of people around us. The portraits that I draw range from young children to grown adults. I have used projects to train my eye for those faint tint and shade differences, also letting them teach me a better understanding of so many things. Some say to me let photos be photos and drawings be drawings, but I like the photogenic style of art. I have come accustomed to spending many hours on one little area to make the piece look just like a photo.
Biography: I have been a freelance drawing and painting artist for the past seven years. I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2007, with an emphasis in drawing at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, which is located in Chicago's western suburbs.
