Natural History Illustrator and Photographer:
illustrating and photographing subjects
from nature, culture, and science.
I’m characterized by exploring new horizons and challenges. And nature has been the drive behind it.
In my detailed renderings work I want to inspire in people an appreciation of the natural world and to visually communicate natural history subjects.
I use a variety of media techniques, both traditional and digital, and I’m always embracing new media techniques.
Though I’ve been known for my hyperrealism and photorealism work, I created the section For Kids which is more cartoon style. My goal is to reach out to the younger generation with artwork that will catch their attention and imagination, and more importantly educate them about nature.
Non-Western art was a crucial influence in shaping my artwork. And of course leading artists such as Henry Moore, Picasso, Paula Rego, Tony Cragg, Brancusi, Anthony Caro, Celia Paul, Käthe Kollwitz and Giacometti became influences.
From Jacques-Louis David, Watteau, Goya, Veronese, Tintoretto, Sisly, and Monet - despite their differences in period and style - I absorbed the 'musical fluidity' of color.
