The Human Form

I am heavily drawn to all facets of the masculine, examining the form, the power, and the beauty of the male body and exploring the deep emotion inside it. I employ the use of chiaroscuro and sciography to model form on paper with dramatic lighting and strong, deep shadows to create visions of the masculine.
