Fine Art Portfolio

The majority of my recent work has been created using colored pencil on a toned, textured paper. I find that toned paper provides better media coverage than a traditional white paper and the texture of the paper allows the ability to apply many layers of colored pencil to achieve certain effects, such as water running over rock.

Pet Portraits

A large body of my work includes pet portraits – both personal and commissioned work. Capturing the personality and presence of a pet is particularly challenging, however very rewarding when experiencing the reaction to the work from the pet’s owner. These works utilized the same toned, textured paper techniques as the landscapes above.

Undergraduate Printmaking Portfolio

The vast majority of my undergraduate work at the University of Hartford, Hartford Art School was done in printmaking. As a printmaking major, I was exposed to a variety of printmaking media. My portfolio represents the media that resonated with me.

The style of my work is influenced by the artist Raphael Soyer that used a variety of cross hatching techniques in rendering a figure, a landscape or still life. This resonated with my greatly and it was particularly representative in my work
