Again, perfect! Great artwork and artist. Thanks!
pretty pictures to make you think.
// what I make
In my work, I try to capture essence – the essence of the world and the people around me. When drawing portraits, I love pushing boundaries: what is the bare minimum of lines needed to capture a face, and a personality? Often I will combine photo-realistic elements with graphic or decorative elements. In my drawings I always strive for a balanced composition and harmony of line and tone. My work is sometimes abstract and conceptual, but always anchored in very real beauty.
// why I do this
Nothing feels better than trusting my gut and relying on the skills that have been inside me all along. Being creative, I know when something is working, and when something is not. There are no limits to what I can learn, and no limits to what I can do.

To achieve the highest quality for my postcards and greeting cards, I chose to have them printed by a professional printing service. I send them my finished designs, which are then printed on digital printing presses, using a 4 colour ink process.
