I create traditional realism art. The classic art that you know what it is the minute you see it. The kind of art you need to frame. I make it a priority to make art that has such specific fine detail but in a way that still keeps its unique art essence without becoming a photograph.
I take inspiration from renaissance artists and use that to create high contrast art that utilises hatching, stumping and sfumato techniques to trick the eye into thinking the 2D is 3D.
My art has been entered into art contests and I have been awarded some small but notable commissions including being chosen as a finalist for the 2015 Game of Thrones: The Compendium; designing traffic light controllers for the City of Medicine Hat, Alberta; and commissioned for a memorial portrait drawing for the grain elevator in Acadia Valley, Alberta, Canada.
In addition my Leon Draisaitl graphite portrait was featured on Sportsnet's Hocket Night in Canada "After Hours" ft. Leon Draisaitl with Scott Oake and Louie DeBrusk on October 28, 2017. The broadcast featured my time-lapse of the drawing, which can be found on my YouTube channel.
