Statement

I draw my portraits and figures in graphite, with occasional touches

of colored pencil.   I seek to achieve an effect similar to that of

silverpoint, with its subtlety and gentleness of line.  Graphite is my

preferred medium, though, as it allows for fine realistic detail, a

range of values, mass, and a direct connection to the model.

I rely on my knowledge of anatomy, proportion, line, form, and

modeling to render my drawings accurately.  My ultimate goal is to

capture  each figure's unique character and distinctive affect

so that he or she comes alive on paper.
