Today, the world of architectural illustration is largely made up of digital, computer generated work. My goal as an artist is to show the viewer the beauty and detail of architectural subjects in the traditional medium of pencil. Excellence in realism is what I strive for, as my drawings intend to emphasize all of the elements and surroundings of a building that make each one so unique. I study how light interacts with each structure and through value contrast and varying pencil strokes, create textures that lift the subject off of the paper and bring the architecture to life. Achieving this with just a pencil challenges my skill, tests my humility, and ultimately rewards and inspires me to create more.
