ARTIST STATEMENT

As a painter, sculptor, and ceramicist, I use a wide variety of medias and mixed-media techniques depending on the use of an image and its context. In painting and illustration, I work mainly in the genres of Natural History Illustration and Paleoart –science-informed art through which I strive to achieve a high level of realism. I paint in any combination of acrylic and oil, watercolor, gauche, and digital painting. For other drawings and illustrations I use charcoal, graphite, colored pencil, and pastel.  I’ve worked as a sculptor for the restoration of an old Buddhist sculpture for a monastery –a Bodhisattva carved of camphor wood. Although I have skills in woodworking and other craft like metalworking and jewelry, by far I express my sculpting abilities most strongly in multiple ceramic disciplines, which –beyond painting- is my primary focus in the realm of art-making.
