I’m inspired to capture the feel and texture of mostly architectural scenic structures through the use of charcoal. I want viewers to be awe inspired by the composition, perspective and sheer achievement of the structures I draw. My artwork represents places I have visited which include bridges, lighthouses, boardwalks, buildings, piers, and parks.
My charcoal drawings add an element of drama, as this medium allows me to produce images that are visually bold. Through charcoal’s softness and “smudge-ability”, intricate details allow me to also use compressed charcoal pencils that can be sharpened to a fine point.
I’m not a traditional artist. I never went to art school or took extensive classes to learn how to become an artist. I was inspired by my mother as her artistic capabilities blossomed while taking an art therapy program in a nursing home and drew some incredible drawings while being legally blind.
