I love to draw, it is the foundation of my art. I’ve explored a variety of drawing mediums; but nothing excites me more than working with my dry and wet tusche washes. I want to give my viewers a new experience when they see my drawings; and this medium helps me to create the images I see in my mind with the emotional impact I feel when I draw.
I also build my own canvases by stretching repurposed coffee bags over wooden frames. I love drawing on the knobbly surfaces with oil pastels – an arduously time-consuming adventure. I enjoy working with these materials because it gives my art unique textures, colors and expression of my visions.
