My inspiration is simple: I paint and draw what I find beautiful. Like any artist, my work is diverse. When it comes to style, I naturally lean toward realism and fantasy while occasionally meshing the two. I might say the human figure, and I suppose more frequently the human face find their way into my work. There's something about the challenge of getting the features just right. Even the slightest change to the nose, for example, can make the subject completely unrecognizable.
