My work is most always inspired by light and shadow, shapes and definition as well as character and mood. The term chiaroscuro, which is the artistic use of light and shadow in such a way that brings a three dimensional aspect of the subject to the viewer has been used by friends and peers to describe my work. I also love the term and practice of “peak, shift, effect” which is the exaggeration or amplification of readily identifiable characteristics of a subject, very much the way an artist might draw or paint a caricature of a person or animal. It entertains our eyes and mind quickly, and allows us to lock in on the interesting aspects of a given subject.

Thanks for lookig, I hope you get a kick out of what I do :)
