I am inspired by anything nature. My children and their unfeigned imagination encourages me. Most of all capturing the emotion in a loved ones portrait forever turning it into a peice of art. I feel that people appreciate hand made personlized items nowadays more than ever before and that is a huge incentive for me.
Skills and Techniques
I can work with several different mediums when customizing a portrait. One of my favorite and very rare mediums to find available for portraits is alcohol ink. It's a lot like watercolor but way more vibrant and unpredictable. It has the translucent dreamy look of watercolor but with an extra pop. It's best for a more surreal look. Graphite, charcoals, pen and ink are most often preferred for a more realistic and classic look. Colored pastels give a softer look. I also like mixing mediums.
