My work is not portraiture, the works are drawings! Sourced from my imagination and fascination of the human head and the variation of cultures and hopefully creating a visual elegance of communication,I feel beauty connects us with the mystery of being.
Some of my works,(images), are created by the building up of layers and levels,to create skin texture and hair structure, the medium I use are Derwent fine art pencils, on soft Canford card which has a (flesh) surface and works in harmony with the fine pencils.
I have four limited edition prints, printed in geclee format from originals, size 23inch x 16 inch, mounted in white, framed in black wood, framed size 31 x23 inch.
There are also six oroginal works, all of my works are created on a black
background which creates the drama i wish to acheive,( with the exeption of
CENTUHUA... which was created on a deep purple background, and BLUE.... which
was created on a grey background) to reflect the mood of these two images.
All my works are glazed and mounted in WHITE and framed in BLACK wood which
compliments the black background of the works.
