Artist Statement

My artistic style is realism and simplicity. I like aesthetically simple drawings usually of people, animals, or observational objects. I draw for not only myself but for others to see and understand the beauty of a self-created photograph.

Winning Artwork

This piece is an ebony pencil drawing based on my own hand observations. At the age of three, I remember walking up golden shiny steps to the entrance of a tall skyscraper in NYC. Being born and raised near the city, the pull to go back and fulfill my dreams of living there again is strong. This piece represents my desire and determination to make it back to that memory once again, no matter how hard it may be.
