I am interested with intricate and subtle details, as I take pleasure in creating Line Art. I greatly enjoy conjuring up the illusion of space by utilizing abstraction and perspective drawing techniques. The framework of each composition is a derivative of interconnected ideas that I express allegorically with originality and historical symbols, such as emblems, totems and icons. I approach my work methodically, but ideas may originate sporadically like a mind-pop. 

I rework and implement new concepts by varying line-weight and quality to imply space and movement using non-linear or linear perspective, while integrating silhouettes, overlapping and superimposed imagery, harmonious and/or contrasting colors, organic and geometric shapes, like motifs and patterns in nature.
